My students are bright, creative, and love to learn! They come to my room excited to sing, dance, and play. Students at my school didn't back until after Labor Day. Some parents decided their children will learn at our new virtual learning academy and some are attending our traditional face to face school.
Things are new and different, but what is the same is that every child deserves a chance to express themselves through music.
As the music teacher, I am trying to provide safe activities and individual instrument bags that the students can use without having to share. Lucky for us, many music stores are offering ideas, products, and resources to help me continue to teach my students with rigor.
Having a mobile storage bin that will house individual kits will allow me to teach music safely while in school but also enable me to distribute them at a moments notice if we need to shutdown again. These bins will contain all materials needed during a class, eliminating passing out materials and sharing. This may include instruments, pencils, crayons, gloves, cleaning supplies, paperwork, and any other materials that need to be distributed. Each student will be responsible for retrieving their own bins and cleaning them before returning them to the cart. The students can feel confident that her/his wellbeing is valued so her/he can relax and have fun. The mobile speaker let's us take our show on the road! We can learn all over the school, including outside, without having to compromise the quality of the lesson.
