My students are amazing. Despite their low social economical status, many being on free or reduced lunch and/or an English language learner, these kiddos are ready to learn everyday and have proven over and over that with effort and a positive attitude they can succeed in whatever they put their mind to. Our students come to school not just to learn, but to be safe, have fun and to grow in all aspects of their lives. They strive to be kids of character and to be good citizens to all those around them.
Not only are they learning, but they are teaching ME new things every day.
My students need 6 sets of the C Major Scale set of Boomwhackers and the Boomwhacker book/cd to gain rhythm and create music. In my classroom, my students learn the importance of reading with expression, being precise in problem solvin,g along with many other thing and I'm always trying to find ways to enhance these skills. This is where you come in.
Help me bring music into the classroom.
I want to intensify expression and precision, but in a different way. By using these musical instruments called "Boomwhackers" students will learn the C scale, follow along the sequence of notes and become more familiar with how music works- all while having FUN.
Bringing these musical instruments into my classroom will enhance the lives of my kiddos all while incorporating performing arts.
Thank you for helping me shape my students into musical beings.
"Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them- a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music. " -President Gerald Ford
