Shirley I have taught Music from K-12 for 18 years. Most of my experience has been in elementary. For the past 3 years I have tried centers in the upper level, with good success. I don't use centers all the time, but do use them a lot. Kids often ask for them. I might start out with rhythms, and Singing, in grades 3-6. Then, if I use centers, I have had: T...See More
