It is that time of year. It is the time of year when I see elementary music educators posting amazing photos of their classrooms. The time of year when we are posting to each other questions about curriculum, how to store boomwhackers and ukeleles, compare schedules, ask about classroom management, favorite teaching tools, and so much more!
It is the time of year when we giggle at these types of memes:

Cleaning the Orff Instruments:
For me, it is that time of year that I need to clean the instruments. For my Orff instruments, I have cleaned them in various ways over the past years. However, when I came across Amy’s blog, Treble in the Classroom, I decided to try out her method. I was very pleased with the results. I will not even show you my before pictures, but they were similar to Amy’s dust bunny pictures. My Orff instruments look beautiful!
You can find Amy’s blog here. The pictures are worth a thousand words in this particular post. Thank you Amy!
