Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have 27 eager and enthusiastic learners who are inspired and love to learn through music. Its fun and motivating! They are Little Learners and they have stolen my heart and deserve the best! We are a small Title I school in beautiful Altadena, California. 90% of our students are Hispanic and are on free or reduced lunch. The majority of the students speak Spanish as their primary language and are children of non-English speaking parents or guardians. After hours of research, I've discovered an amazing program called Flocabulary. It is an exciting and engaging way to access the curriculum. It is standards-based and provides extension activities for rigor and quickly assess the student's learning. Who doesn't love to be motivated and inspired by music?

My Project

Everyone is motivated by music at some point in their lives. Third graders love to sing! Music is fun and can help us remember things better. These songs are catchy and fun. I plan to use Flocabulary daily to review and learn new concepts. It covers all 3rd grade standards, concepts, and subjects. It also includes open-ended questions to discuss, review questions, quizzes, and independent work. The donation to this project will allow my 3rd graders to access the curriculum in a fun and engaging way. I have seen the positive effect that music plays in the elementary classroom.
