My Students

We are a Title One School. We have mostly single-parent homes and students being raised by grandparents. Parental involvement is lacking.

Our kids are energetic and love to sing.

They do not have opportunities to go to the theater to see live musicals and orchestra performances. They do not have access to literature at home. I strive to provide these things to my students in my class.

My Project

We will be using these books in our classroom to explore rhythms, form, instrument sounds, and improvisation. Students can create movement and musical compositions.

One example is to take a poem that is related to the book and say the poem after every few pages.

You can also take certain words and have an instrument sound for that word.

These books can also be used to present in a program for the student's parents.

The books will also be used to practice fluency and vocabulary. Kids love hearing books read aloud and pairing them with music activities. It is the perfect combination.
