My students need 60 musical stories to explore songs, various musical concepts and historical music makers.
We need to read! The best way for kids to learn to read and write well is to read lots of great books, and there happen to be a ton of great musical books out there.
Our students are kind, hardworking kids from the community around our school.
Most receive free or reduced lunches because they come from low-income families. Most also love coming to school each week to the tough-but-tender staff at our school. The teachers and administrators push the students hard, but are always there with hugs and kind words to keep them going.
Some of my students' favorite activities involve stories. Stories about music and musicians help them learn new information. Stories based on songs provide great visuals for younger students and visual learners of all ages. Other kinds of stories give us a great jumping off point to add music and sound effects to create something brand new!
Creating a music library will benefit our students for years and years to come.
Whether we are reading together as a class or visiting the music library station, students will enjoy music and reading with this great book collection!
