Our students are fun, loving and very unique. I'm a special education teacher. Majority of my students have been diagnosed with some type of learning disability or health issue that impedes their ability to learn in a traditional educational setting. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!
Located in an inner-city in Georgia, with a population of five hundred students, my school is a Title I school where all of the students qualify for free lunch.
The kids love coming to school everyday where they are given an opportunity to grow at their own individual pace.
Integrating drumming into our special education classroom for students with ADHD and other cognitive disorders will be a beneficial way for us to connect with our students on a level that will help improve communication, collaboration and increase cognition and attention within the classroom. With the various delays and struggles that our kids face in school with staying focused and on task, these drums will help us communicate with them in a new way and help them celebrate each other.
The Djembe drums for them can make a huge difference in the learning and the social experiences they will experience.
By incorporating the drums into our daily instruction it will help make the different transitions from activity to activity run smoother as well as give the students a sense of responsibility. They will be able to focus their energy on the lesson to know when they will be able to use the drum.
