"What are we doing in music today?" This is the question I hear when my students enter the music room each week. They are excited to find out if we will get to sing, play instruments, listen to music, or experience music by dancing!
My students are musical, creative, and excited to learn about many different musical concepts in the classroom.
Our school serves students with approximately 65% of the population on free and reduced lunch. We are privileged to offer the students extracurricular activities that include musical ensembles such as chorus, handbells, world drumming and a xylophone group.
My students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds, so learning about different styles of music will help reach more students. The resources in this project ("Picante", "Freddie the Frog", "Beatbox", "First, We Sing") will help the teachers provide the students with more musical opportunities from a variety of cultures. These resources will also help our students prepare for their upcoming Grade Level Concerts!
My students will be extremely excited to use a racquetball to keep the beat with new styles of music!
We will work together to practice finding the beat to our new styles of music with these racquetballs. This will enhance coordination and musical ability. Students will love getting to mix Music and PE!
Boomwhackers are a fun instrument and this lower octave will be new to us. The addition of this set of boomwhackers will allow for more students to participate at the same time in our lessons. Students will be more engaged in the activity and be interested to learn about the lower pitch of this set of boomwhackers.
