My Students

My students are part of a Title 1 school in a small town of North Carolina. My students come in excited and ready to learn new things everyday. They love working in centers and especially love technology. Most of our learning time is spent in learning centers. We have both guided math and guided reading time everyday. The joy of my class is that my students come to us as the babies of the school and leave as first graders.

My Project

Every year, our students perform using 8 note bells at Christmas. I am asking for three sets of bells so that my classroom has there own set to perform with. This is a big performance every year for our kindergarten who work very hard on five different songs. We not only perform a concert for our parents but also perform at the school wide Christmas concert. There is so much research concerning music and student learning and how important it is for children to have a music education. This project with not only increase my student knowledge of music but also give them a concert to be proud of.
