Mrs. Sellers from Zanesville OH is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

More Ukuleles for Lifelong Learning

My students need ten more ukuleles to make a complete classroom set. This will get the ukuleles in their hands twice as often. The students have enjoyed the opportunity to learn chords and songs.

My Students

Our elementary school is in southeastern Ohio. We are a Title I school with all of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Our building houses 1,100 students, Kindergarten through fifth grade students.

Our students love to make music.

They love creating music with our Orff instruments and rhythm instruments. They love to sing, dance and play in our music classrooms. We have an after school choir, recorders in fourth and fifth grade, programs for grades one through five and an Orff Ensemble. At our middle school and high school, students can participate in band, jazz band, choir, a cappella choir, piano class and theory. Music is valued by our students and families. We believe in helping our students be life long learners in an ever-changing world.

My Project

The students have really grasped the concept of chords on our ukuleles and our project has been very successful. Now we would like ten more ukuleles for less sharing and more playing. We are also wanting to obtain tuners to help students learn to tune the ukuleles for themselves.

Ten more ukuleles will give our students more opportunities for hands on music making.

We have used the ukuleles to explore the twelve bar blues, to play folk songs and to play with our school performances. In addition, the shark tuners will make tuning the ukuleles go more quickly and accurately. The ukuleles have engaged new students as well as students already excited about music in general. Adding ten more ukuleles is a natural progression to continue our chance for life-long learning.
