Music, Music, Music!

The cost of 11 rhythm sticks and 11 triangles from ABC School Supply, Inc. is $120, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

This year music has been an important element in our classroom! I teach a first grade class of 20 English Language Development students. The students come from 10 different countries and speak 9 different languages. Music has been a universal means of communication and learning in our class. In April we have an Open House for the parents and are planning to have an entertaining performance. Since music has been so important to us, I thought it would be great to not only sing, but also to play some rhythm instruments. (Rhythm and beat are part of our fine arts state standards). Through music the students have learned cooperation and improved their ability to listen and focus in a fun and exciting way! Students who rarely speak out, eagerly participate in musical activities! I'd like their parents to see how well these wonderful students are doing! Earlier in the year we made "shakers" by putting rice in small water bottles. We made rhythm sticks by cutting dowels. It would be great if the kids could have "real" instruments for their April performance for their parents. I am asking for 11 triangles and 11 pairs of rhythm sticks. While the instruments would initially be used by this year's class of students, the instruments would also be shared with other classes and be available for more students in the years to come. Thanks in advance for helping us develop our musical skills!
