My students need rhythm sticks, castanets, triangles, bells, and Boomwhackers for our music time as we do not have any musical instruments for my preschool classroom.
My students are vibrant, playful and energetic four and five-year-olds. Of my fifteen students, a third are special education, and about one half are English language learners. They are part of an All-Day Preschool Program, in which they are provided with more classroom time and instruction to help strengthen foundational skills. My students always put a smile on my face.
My students' school experience is just beginning, and I want to help influence their LOVE for school.
Our school is located in one of the toughest parts of our community, but we do not let that stop us. We provide a safe place for our students and families and bring good to the area. Not only that, but we provide the foundation for our students' future learning. Thank you for helping provide the stepping stones for my students' learning, and encouraging them to love school.
My students love to dance and move during our brain breaks and music time. The use of music in my classroom is daily, and the addition of instruments will strengthen our music time and brain breaks. The Boomwhackers and Rhythm sticks specifically will allow for my students to use their whole body to learn and express themselves.
Research has proven that music in early childhood strengthens social and emotional skills, helps students speak clearly, and develops more of a vocabulary.
Having musical instruments will not only teach my students music but will also teach them responsibility and respect for our classroom property. We will learn what each musical instrument is, what it sounds like, how to play it and how to properly care for it. Additionally they will learn how to share all of the instruments and how to take turns, one of the most important foundation skills we teach. Many of my students have not been exposed to playing instruments and I would love to start teaching them musical elements.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our classroom and how we would benefit from musical instruments. Have a great day!
