Mrs. Fluty from Centralia MO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Operation: Soft Floor for Cold Tushies in Music Class

My students need something to sit on for musical activities rather than the cold tile floor (a carpet) .

My Students

My school is a unique institution in that it is one of the only public middle schools in the somewhat rural area to have band, choir, and orchestra programs. Additionally, every child in the junior high is required to participate in my general music class. This means that the students are receiving a generous dose of music education, which is incredibly important to encouraging them to become life-long supporters of the arts. As we all know, growing up can often feel like trial by fire, and middle school is a time of great emotional stress and and sometimes even physical peril for many young men and women. It is my goal that my classroom become a space where they can still explore as children, create as young individuals, and blossom into young adults by identifying musical styles that speak to their tastes.

Music can enable students to realize their self worth.

My hope is that through a refreshed and energized music classroom I'll be able to instill within my kiddos a sense of excitement about the world of music and the possibilities for their futures.

My Project

I believe physical activity is absolutely necessary in a general music classroom, so I would like to forego chairs when at all possible.

My current classroom is a blank canvas with an expansive tile floor so I'm looking to put something on the ground where we can all sit and engage in music-making together.

This would also serve as a safe space for movement activities such as dance, providing a soft surface for knees, elbows, and feet. The specific rug I've selected will also serve a teaching purpose as it displays a music staff where I can provide a visual aid for standard music notation.
