I will use the Lego building blocks to help students understand music note values. For example, the length of a 2 x 8 lego brick represents the value of a whole note. The kids will use the blocks to build rhythm patterns, connecting their experience with legos to the values of the notes and rests. These hands-on experiences are something that will support all of my students, especially those needing to have concrete examples of music composition. Learning music through hands-on experiences supports students in making connections to music concepts that are tricky to learn. Currently, I create a music staff on the carpet using tape. Because the tape is easy to come off, I have to replace it often. The music rug, with the staff and treble clef, will be a much better visual for the students. Students will be able to stand on the staff or use other objects to show where each note is located on the staff. I enjoy incorporating movement into my music class, so this will be an opportunity to implement more hands-on lessons that allows students to move their bodies. An article, Learning in Motion: Bring Movement Back to the Classroom, says, "Studies show that children who are more active exhibit better focus, faster cognitive processing, and more successful memory retention than kids who spend the day sitting still." I'd love to provide these opportunities for my students in grades 1-5.
