Mrs. Barnes from Humble TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Rug for All Occasions

My students need a round rug, with spaces designated for a seating chart and a treble clef in the middle to assist in teaching the names of the lines and spaces!

My Students

My school is in it's fifth year, and still gaining new families every day. My students come from many diverse backgrounds and find themselves looking for how they fit in and where they belong.

While they all bring something unique to the music room, one thing they have in common is a love for games.

The majority of the music games we play in class involve sitting in a circle. While that might sound easy, sitting 20 kindergarten students in a circle so everyone can see can be difficult and time consuming! We want everyone to participate and learn efficiently!

My Project

My students love to play games in music class! It's a fun way to review concepts and gets them really singing.

The majority of our games involve sitting in a circle, so we need a round classroom rug.

We currently have a rectangular rug with a corresponding seating chart. Imagine trying to make a circle around a rectangular rug with six year olds! We usually end up in a rectangle with students squished together on one side, and big gaps on the other!

Even my older students will love playing treble clef name games to reinforce the names of the lines and spaces. They learn the names in third grade, and use this knowledge when learning recorder in fourth grade.
