Mrs. G. from Alta Loma CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Play the Music Nice and Loud!

My students need vinyl records to help them energize their mood, and work through their problems and to help provide an outlet for them to take control of their feelings.

My Students

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin

My students are learning sponges!

They are eager to "absorb" any information that I present to them. They are constantly asking why questions, and, as their teacher, I believe in motivating their higher-order thinking by answering their questions and motivating them to continue to be curious learners within their surroundings. If you were to walk the hallway at my school site, you'd see that every teacher strives to make their lessons engaging, enjoyable, inspiring, and interactive.

My Project

Research suggests that music can help stimulate the body’s natural feel-good chemicals such as endorphins and oxytocin. My students are young, so I feel that it is important that I provide them with the coping skills they need to help manage a positive emotional and mental well-being. One way that I strive to do this is by playing music. I notice that when I do this, my students' state of body and mind instantly heightens to a positive level.

The items that I'm looking to receive for our classroom will continue to help my students with promoting wellness, managing stress, expressing their feelings, enhancing memory, improving communicating, and promoting physical rehabilitation.

Will you help us crank up our music? With the help of the vinyl records, artists such as the Beach Boys (Pet Sounds) and Johnny Cash (The Essential Johnny Cash) will help us with promoting an overall healthy wellbeing!
