Mrs. Smith from Greenville NC is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need rhythm instruments to help tell musical stories. By using bongos and cabasas as a tool for literacy, students are able to comprehend the meaning of each story with a higher level of success.
Students at our school believe that music prepares the brain for achievement, fosters superior working memory and cultivates better thinking skills. We believe that by exposing our students to a successful music and arts program, they become well rounded and have a higher chance for success in the regular classroom.
Students at my school have proven time and time again that even though we are a high poverty school, we can accomplish many things.
We don't want our circumstances to keep us from being successful. Teachers, parents, and students have been working hard to support one another and continue to show growth each year.
Music has always been a way for children to remember stories and learn about the world around them. Using rhythm instruments such as cabasas, bongos, wood blocks, and tone blocks as a stimulus can make information easier to remember. By using instruments to play the part of different characters in stories, children show a higher level of comprehension.
I can't think of a better way to prepare students to enjoy the world of literacy than through music.
Musical stories help increase listening skills in such a fun way. Listening skills are key in singing, language, and expressive movement, and later reading and writing.
Rhythm instruments will allow my elementary music classes to create musical stories as well as be an active part of telling stories that have already been written.
