My kindergarteners will benefit from this project by having the ability to recall information through music. For example students will have chances to play the piano and listen to the piano being played while learning to skip count by 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s, as well as to 100 and beyond. Another goal I have for my kindergarteners is for them to be able to write and play their own melody to accompany the days of the week and the months of the year. Students will work cooperatively in order to compose their melody and lyrics. They will then share their melodies and lyrics with their classmates during our morning meeting. Students will also use the piano for musical theater "numbers" to perform before their parents during our Kinder parent assemblies, and Kinder graduation. We always start our day as a community by having morning meeting where we greet each other in song, review the calendar and weather, sing about the days of the week and the months of the year, and count our school days through song. We continue throughout our day singing special songs to teach us about rules in the classroom, on the playground, and in the hallways. "Music is what feelings sound like." Please help put joy into my students' learning by providing us with a beautiful piano. Thank you so much!
