My students need letter tiles to use while learning piano key names.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Musical, creative, inquisitive, energetic...these are all words that describe my students. They love to sing, move, play instruments, and learn in hands-on ways. They love to use drums, Orff instruments, and ukuleles in our music room, and they love to perform.
Around 25% of our students come from military families, and this brings them their own unique set of challenges.
We have also received new students from Puerto Rico due to hurricane Maria. I want to teach them a love for music that will last them their whole lives, wherever they may find themselves.
One of the challenges for a new piano player is identifying the keys of the piano by letter name - all 88 of them!
I am requesting these Bananagrams sets to use the letter tiles to help identify notes on the piano.
Students can use the tiles in a game to draw a tile and place it on the piano on the correct key. This will be a fun way to learn the letters on the piano in an engaging and hands on way. I will also be using this project, along with all my funded projects related to the piano lab, to help students learn the monetary value of the things purchased for us through the generosity of donors.
