Mrs. Douglas from Madison WI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Creativity and Movement with Music

My students need a classroom CD and a cassette player to participate in more creative movement and learning opportunities. They benefit from listening to books, instrumentals, creative music and educational songs during their free play time.

My Students

Our four year old kindergarten (4K) class is located in a diverse and welcoming city in Wisconsin. We have 35 students who are eager to learn, helpful, motivated, kind, curious, supportive of one another, creative, playful and energetic. They benefit from hands-on and child-directed activities to help them reach their learning goals. We spend our days together learning through play and creating our own learning activities. I am incredibly fortunate to spend my days with our school's youngest learners.

My Project

Our 4K students will benefit from having more opportunities for learning with the use of a classroom CD player. During our hour-long choice time, they will be able to listen to music and dance with friends, practice letters and counting with learning songs, and work on their imagination and pre-literacy skills while listening to stories on tape. We will also be able to use the CD player during large group times. This will help engage our young learners and make learning fun and meaningful. We will use the CD player and headphones to offer movement breaks throughout the day!
