What is it like to start as the new music teacher at a campus a few weeks after school begins? I am quickly finding out! It is exciting and eventful. I am eager to find ways to quickly engage the students in meaningful music activities. The bells and boomwhackers I am requesting will allow me to have many students engaged in music making while teaching them about sound and science - STEM plus STEAM! In regard to music, bells, and boomwhackers allow students to learn concepts related to beat, melody, rhythm and playing in ensemble groups. In regard to science and STEAM, the boomwhackers help to make clear connections between size and sound.
