My Students

My students are a mix of diverse learners and general education students. As a school, we're trying to include as many students as possible in the general education environment while still providing instruction in smaller settings. To achieve that, teachers and students are collaborating across environments.

Building responsibility and confidence makes a huge difference for my students.

We have rotations for math and reading to practice different skills and to build independence. It is difficult for my students at the beginning of the year, but by December, they can usually work for a full 30 minutes without teacher intervention during their independent work time.

My Project

I am part of a group of educators using a program called Little Kids Rock. This project will supplement the materials my students will receive through a grant. The ukeleles, practice pads, and stands will be integral parts of instruction every day! This will be one of a series of projects to bring music instruction into my special education classroom as a supplement to my regular students and several others who are in need of music, social, and academic intervention.

These ukeleles and music stands will support student generated compositions and versions of songs they will select to play.

This works as simultaneous instruction, practice, literacy, and social emotional instruction. Some of my students would not sit through a formal music instruction component like our amazing Silver Band, but through incremental practice with me, I plan to let their musicianship SHINE.
