Ms. Van Eaton from Las Vegas NV is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Playing Our Way to Learning

Help me give my students a way to play a melody. Due to COVID-19, my students are learning remotely and do not have access to an melody instrument.

My Students

My fourth and fifth grade students are creative and fun-loving. They are very excited to learn new things and enjoy making music together. We celebrate inclusion and understanding each and every day. Their enthusiasm makes me want to be a better teacher.

My Project

Many of our standards rely on playing an instrument to learn about musical notes and how melodies are created. In fact, our students are expected to improvise and create their own melodies using instruments. Since we are distance learning, students will not have access to our classroom set of recorders, xylophones, or glockenspiels.

These easy-to-clean and sturdy student recorders will allow my fourth and fifth graders to play from the safety of their own homes with an instrument that they don't have to worry about breaking.

They also won't have to worry about catching germs from other students because this will be their own instrument.
