Positively Playful!

My students need music classroom games, books and incentives to supplement our lessons and encourage them to continue putting forth their best effort in class!

My Students

Children discover the world, and their place in it, through play. By incorporating play into the classroom, teacher afford students the opportunity to experiment with the skills and objectives being taught and apply this knowledge in innovative ways!

My students are inquisitive, open-minded boys and girls who would greatly benefit from opportunities to extend their learning and enhance classroom experiences.

These enthusiastic, curious and creative little people are eager to learn about everything, including MUSIC!

In my music classroom we frequently use games and whole group activities to enhance the lessons and make abstract concepts more concrete.

My Project

My students need music games, books and incentives that will encourage them to apply the knowledge they receive in our weekly lessons in new and innovative ways! Instead of simply relaying information in a question and answer format in class, my students will be able to access and employ their critical thinking skills, collaborate with peers, express themselves more openly, and have fun!

Donating to this project help my students to demonstrate what they know and it will allow me to assess their learning in quick, inviting, and exciting ways!

The music games will enhance their recollection and recognition of musical facts and symbols. Read-aloud books on music lend opportunities to practice independent reading and listening skills at stations in the classroom, and the the incentives/prizes are a tangible goal towards which my students can work at their own pace.
