This is a fan favorite every year! I love it for many reasons, not the least of which is the playful assessment I am able to do!

Many years ago on facebook a music teacher shared these amazing poster cards I have used often. My copies of the card got water stained over the summer with a leak in my storage room while my classroom was being painted, so I had to make new ones. I have tried to find the original teacher who shared but was unable to. So, thank you, unknown person.
There are many ways to use these - display and ask students to analyze what is happening or for choice in what they want to do next or simply use these as a reminder for yourself about what options you have for different activities. Remember that "Play" doesn't always mean instruments - it can be games, body percussion, or instruments.

I love using these to get my students into movement and dance formations -I simply hold up the sign and students quietly (or silently) move into position. We practice moving into formations at the beginning of the school year and I use these often to get students quickly to where they need to be for various activities.
UPDATED - I made them with stick figures also so you have a choice of which ones to print & use.
Here's the link to the slide set to print.
