My students need a variety of musical instruments such as hand bells, RainBoMaker and a drum, to facilitate gross motor and social development in the classroom.
Music is important in any Pre-K environment, but this is especially true in our class.
The students in our class are 3 and 4 years old, and they all have disabilities that affect their abilities to communicate and function in the classroom.
Many of our students are learning to make specific sounds, and we have found that music is a very powerful tool in helping them do so. In fact, last year one of our students spoke for the first time by singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!" 99% of the students in our school receive free or reduced lunch, so their families often do not have the resources to expose them to a variety of different musical instruments.
We use music throughout the day in our classroom. Many of our students are learning to imitate others, and it often helps them to have the use of an object. The students often use bean bags or dancing scarves while moving to express themselves when music is playing. However, they have begun to seem tired of using the same objects day after day, so incorporating new musical items such as hand bells, a Preschool Big Drum, and RainBoMaker,in our classroom would allow them to continue developing their skills in new and fun ways.
Donations to this project will improve our classroom environment because it will allow our students to experience music in new and exciting ways while continuing to develop basic social and gross motor skills.
Music has been such an important window into the minds of many of our students who cannot communicate, and donating to this project will allow us to continue to do so.
