I teach K-6 general music and 5th grade band at a school south of Seattle where 89% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. A majority of our students are bilingual and thrive off of bringing different cultures into our music classroom. I will strive to provide music education that everyone can access, understand, and enjoy.
I came into my classroom this summer as a first year teacher, realizing that we are lacking in many materials in order to create an equal and opportune access to music education.
My goal is to create a fun-filled, functioning and equitable classroom for my students.
I am passionate and determined about providing these kids what they deserve in order to achieve success in the music classroom.
In our music program, we use lots of manipulatives. Right now, we have no organizational system for grade level manipulatives, or even the means to separate them by skill such as movement, rhythm, melody, form etc.
Help us keep our manipulatives organized with this paper drawer organizer!
Not only will this help me as the teacher, it will help student helpers know where manipulatives are as they will be clearly labeled. Students need structure and routine, and as much as they love the use of these manipulatives now, they have no routine on how to put them away or take them out. Organization is key in our classroom!
