Easier Searching and Customization in Reimagined Resource Manager

Beginner Guitar and Ukulele Added to QStrum

Our guitar composition Creative, QStrum, now features both beginner guitar and ukulele options! Why not add a composition assignment to our 5th grade Ukulele Project? Challenge your students to compose a song using QStrum and then have them play it on their own ukulele – allowing students to go through the process of creating, performing, responding, and connecting.

New State Song: Alabama

Alabama’s state song makes a great addition to our ClassPlay library, giving teachers in Alabama a jumping off point to discuss state history, geography, and more!
