Music in the Sensory Garden

My students need the opportunity to feel and hear sounds in an outdoor Sensory Garden.

My Students

My classroom is a non-traditional music class. The majority of our students have very limited speech. Music is an interactive and sensory experience.

My students are all Special needs and Multi-handicapped.

Music is one of their favorite subjects and one that they can succeed in. Each song activity is adapted to each child with a focus on participation; either with scarves flying in the air, beach balls bouncing to the beat or fish flying as they help shake a parachute to the music. Our school includes Life Skills Support, Multiple Disability Support, Autistic Support, Emotional Support, Behavioral Intervention, Preschool and Hearing Impaired.

My Project

Our school is in the process of creating an outdoor Sensory Garden. We are trying to purchase a Tung-Drum that the students can touch, grasp mallets, create sounds that float through the air and that you can feel through the ground. We now have bubbling water bursting out that is recycled into a drain, fluttering windsocks purchased through DonorsChoose hanging from our tree, and individual garden plots that the students are using for learning about soil, plants, bugs and science.

Donations to the project of a Tung-Drum will improve our Sensory Garden by including all of our students, no matter their special need or disability.

A Tung-Drum offers so many opportunities for participation.
