Hands on Music Learning!

Help me give my students opportunities for hands on learning in the music room. The music-go-arounds will give students the opportunity to work on building music through the use of hands on manipulatives. Thank you for your support!

My Students

Our school is located in a rural town in the heart of west central Minnesota. Our school district serves approximately ten small communities in the area. My students are wonderful kids. They are curious, creative and active learners who enjoy activities that keep them engaged!

We are lucky to have music class every day where we can be found learning about and making music.

Each grade level puts on two performances each year for families, friends, and community members. They enjoy the opportunity to perform and share their music with others!

My Project

The materials in this project will give my students hands on experiences at making and composing music. The music-go-around are a great manipulative for giving students this experience.

I also focus on following the letter curriculum that Kindergarten follows.

The alphabet action songbook it a great way to provide active and engaging experiences to work on each letter and it's sound.

I love to incorporate literacy whenever I can. I feel the two books in this project will help with our focus on patriotic music and our composer of the month curriculum.

Thank you for supporting music education at our school!
