Mrs. Warbinton from Indianapolis IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Make Music at Our Desks!

My students need supplemental music activities, including erasable music chart boards, that can be done in a traditional classroom setting.

My Students

My elementary is a high poverty (89%) school with high mobility (39%) rate. I am a Mobile Music Teacher without a classroom and would like to create more center-based learning for my students.

My students have the desire to learn and I want to keep teaching Music at the high standards my students and I have come to expect the past 28 years.

Items I am requesting will allow me to creatively teach music while students are in the traditional classroom setting of desks with chairs and little open floor space.

I have had tremendous support for my educational projects on Donor's Choose and expect this project to be seen as one to support.

My Project

Music Fun 101, Music Masterminds-Ultimate Collection of Games and Puzzles Book, Synchronized Lummi Sticks, Synchronized Recorder plus additional supplemental activities, games, puzzles and assessments will allow me to liven up music lessons being taught in the general classrooms.

The students will need enriched activities to make up for the lack of instrument playing and movement lessons since I travel to each general education classroom.

I have chosen a wide-variety of activities that should be easy to accomplish at standard classroom desks while still mastering national music standards.

I feel these high quality activities will enhance and enrich my lessons while continuing to engage the students during this time of learning music in their general education classroom.
