My Students

Music, at its essence, is what gives us memories. And the longer a song has existed in our lives, the more memories we have of it. - Stevie Wonder

Our students come from a very diverse background.

They are learning with their whole bodies. They have been learning and growing through movement, exploration, discovery, and wonder. With hands-on play and learning our preschoolers have been learning to experiment, and interact with their peers as they work in groups or individually where a lot of learning happens.

They are learning to explore in order to make sense of their world, in the classroom, outside, and in their communities. The materials will also help with inventiveness, by being encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they will develop a sense of innovation that will be important in their adult lives.

My Project

This project is going to benefit almost all the students in our program, during free-play outside. Though there is free-play, are an educator I want to facilitate learning and have instructional materials to benefit them. The boombox and the CD’s I have selected are going to help our students to dance and move around the playground. We will use other music to encourage our students listen to multicultural songs, children’s music, and modern age-appropriate music. The apron and paint brushes will be available for the students to paint during the time they are listening to music. Some children love to dance, and others like to listen while doing small group and playing. Our students will be inspired to create as they are painting and drawing.

These materials will also help our students with their motor skills.

Many of the motions involved in making art, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children. It will help them with language development, because they will learn many different vocabulary words will listening to music, and for very young children, making art—or just talking about it—provides opportunities to learn words for colors, shapes and actions. It will also help them in decision making. Art and music will strengthen their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices during creating art carries over into other parts of life. The materials will also help with inventiveness, by being encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they will develop a sense of innovation that will be important in their adult lives.
