Help me give my students drums, rain sticks, a magnetic mobile whiteboard, math games, graphing paper, and a Magna-tiles set.
I work with students who are English language learners and have learning disabilities. They also come from families that struggle with paying bills and affording school supplies and books. Despite these challenges, my students bring many strengths to the classroom, including a passion for learning and a willingness to take risks as they acquire the building blocks of reading.
My students love math, science, computers, and art, and they love learning how things work.
They are curious about the world and are eager to improve their literacy skills.
Help me give my students wooden djembes, buffalo drum, and fiberskyn frame drums, rainsticks, and books to be used by students and the teacher in a healing drum circle for students to make soulful connections to each other and to center themselves so that they are relaxed and ready to learn. The whiteboard easel will showcase the positive intention for the day as well as rhythms and math facts or concepts that the students will be working on for the day. The learning games, ball mazes, folder activities, graph paper, manipulatives, and cards will give students more opportunities to practice and show what they have learned after drumming out the algorithms and facts.
When students beat out math facts and the steps to long division or the order of operations, these concepts will get stored in their long term memory, since they are linked to music.
When learning is linked to music, the connections in the brain are strengthened and students benefit from interdisciplinary learning through STEAM - science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. These percussion instruments, healing drum circle books, and math aides will add magic, flair, and beauty into our classroom while students hone their math skills and develop a lifelong love and appreciation for learning.
