Ms. Lee from Merced CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Preschoolers Love Playing Music

My students need a set of rhythm instruments and 1 digital camera.

  • $355 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My preschoolers love coming to school and learning about music. They love making music and playing in a band.

My students attend preschool because their parents want them to get ahead in school.

They love learning about new shapes and participating in daily activities. They especially love learning about music and playing musical instruments. Young children should be exposed to exploring new sounds.

My Project

A new center with new instruments will inspire my young students. The materials will be used immediately. Students can create a band and play to existing CD's. We will sing and play different sounds. Also, we will also be able to record our performances on the new digital camera.

Every child should be exposed to art and music.

Having a well-rounded education is vital. A musical center for preschoolers will inspire them to participate in band or orchestra.
