Music Rug for our Little Treble Makers

Help me give my students this beautiful rug so they can move and play in the music classroom.

My Students

My students walk into my classroom ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. They love to move and sing while learning the skills for music.

I teach at a Title I school in Oklahoma, where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Despite many hardships and stressful home lives, my students are eager to come to music to sing, dance, and play instruments. I want a rug so I can have the younger students on the floor and not sitting in chairs where their feet don't even touch the floor. This allows them to move freely and behave in a way that is developmentally appropriate for them and in a fun and interactive way.

My Project

This music rug would be so beneficial in the music room. First, we need it for its function as a rug. We would use it as a place to sit and play, somewhere to put things, with a seating chart/placement, or just as an area that's defined as different from the rest of the room. More importantly, we could use it for the content ON the rug. Learning about the musical staff is hard for students because in a book or song it's a 2d abstract thing. This rug makes the musical staff so big and real! I can already think of all the activities and opportunities for concept reinforcement. I could tell students, "put your right foot on the G" or "drop your beanbag on the A." Activities like this make what is usually so abstract become real and tangible.

My students love music and strive to become better with each activity.

Many of my students are English Language Learners and they struggle and shy away from any activity where they are asked to read or write. This rug would be a transformative tool to help them feel confident about reading music and understanding the staff. I know how happy they'll be about playing on this rug and learning very difficult content along the way.
