My Students

My students are music-loving, inquisitive, good humored, and eager to learn. My students enjoy playing sports, playing video games, building things, and drawing. We live in a small rural community in South Carolina. Our school is a Title I school with approximately 70 percent of our students living at or below the poverty level. As indicated by district, state, and national testing data, our students are performing below average in reading/language arts and math.

My musically under exposed students will thrive with real-life hands on learning by having a curriculum that they can relate to.

Being from low socio-economic households, these students do not have a lot of experience with music reading. Music class is a safe environment to investigate and explore a plethora of musical genres and instruments.

My Project

In a Title I school, most students do not have opportunities with the arts. As a first year music teacher, my classroom library is limited. By purchasing the Freddie the Frog series, my students will be engaged with learning musical notes, rhythm, melody, and harmony through story telling. Freddie the Frog teaches students about various concepts including treble clef, bass clef, jazz, vocal exploration, and much more.

Freddie the Frog is a music curriculum designed to teach students in grades K-3 through interactive story telling.

These stories will provide students from all backgrounds with the opportunity to learn how to read music.
