My General Music students are active and will to get involved in games that help them to learn and remember musical notation. They love to sing, dance, and play music theory games on the floor!
They really need to use all of the floor space to allow them to move freely throughout the room while responding to the music.
Students sing for parents in assemblies, participate in Chorus, and write their own songs. They love using technology to tap into how music is being performed around the world! They write about the songs they hear in their journals and make recordings in the classroom and on stage. My students participate in after school clubs and activities that demonstrate their interests and musical skills including a multi-age community singing group, a musical arts club, and by auditioning for the school's annual Variety Show.
I am requesting an instructional floor area rug for a music classroom. There are slightly over 600 students receiving Vocal/General Music Instruction.
My students need free space for movement, playing instruments, and circle games without bumping into chairs.
The use of floor seating is especially typical for Kindergarten through Second Grade. We have been supporting floor activities from a donation of 75 carpet squares from a local carpet business for the last two years. Although these squares have facilitated smooth transitions in the past, they fray easily and have been discarded because of wear and tear through constant use.
Educational content specific carpeting will support our instructional time with the students by improving transitions for seating as they arrive and throughout transitions throughout music time.
