My Students

At my elementary school, my students come into class always excited and ready for the next project or game we are playing in music. Technology is always incorporated into lessons, whether it's through the Smart Board, iPad, or interactive website games. Students are always willing to put themselves out there, especially if it means getting to use the 'fun' and 'exciting' tech equipment.

While our school is located in a small mountain town, the cultural variety is not lacking.

There are families of every cultural background at our school and the students are always willing to share a little bit about themselves. Our classroom takes the opportunity to forge this diversity into a tight-knit family as well as give opportunities for self-expression through various musically-based technological opportunities.

My Project

In Springtime Alaska the days are longer but the weather is still wet and muddy. Students begin to get antsy because they're still in class and don't get enough time to exercise.

I'm asking for 30 yoga balls to add to the movement and music curriculum.

These yoga balls go in holders I already have and students will have opportunities to dance and move to music while practicing fundamental music skills and movement skills.

Like Zumba, the children will follow the teacher through a series of movements using the yoga ball. The classroom will be set up so that each child stands behind a yoga ball and plays or dances to the beats and rhythms on the ball while following the teacher.
