My Students

My students are eager to learn, love to ask questions, and truly get excited to experience something new. We enjoy hands on activities and anything with technology.

I am requesting hand held bells, a case to hold them, a music song book, and color coded cards.

I plan on adding this to our music curriculum and performing a show for our parents and school.

Our school's vision is to promote collaboration between staff, parents, and students to achieve academic excellence. We strive to create a safe environment, which fosters the development of responsible, caring students who are lifelong learners who are prepared to meet the challenges of a culturally diverse community.

We are a mixture of many different cultures and enjoy celebrating each others backgrounds. There are 24 students in the class, 12 boys and 12 girls. My students had the same teacher for kindergarten and first grade so they have been together for three years. The families and students have formed some wonderful bonds and I'm confident many of my students will have friendships that last for years.

My Project

My students must keep up with all the different options to meet our music standards. Our parents love to watch student-led performances and I already envision using these handheld bells to bring musical joy from our class.

I was blown away when I first witnessed children perform songs using the handheld bells and I knew I had to have my class do this for our parents.

This is a unique way to celebrate the musical skills learned in my class.

The students will use the different noted bells, Kids Play 20-Note Handbell Set and Rhythm Band 8-Note Handbell Set, to create beautiful music during upcoming parent performances. We will get our music from the music book and the color-coded cards will help them stay in sync. Since we are requesting many different bells, the cases will help store them and keep them safe.

Students are passionate about different aspects of the school. Some love to read or enjoy writing. Some just want to get outside and play any game offered. Some love music and gravitate toward it. I want to offer this to those who will thrive in this subject.
