Sing, say, dance, and play! Every day an exciting adventure awaits my students when they enter my music classroom, a.k.a. Ms. K.'s House of Music. We sing, say, dance, and play to experience music at its fullest!
I teach music to sixth-eighth grade students in a STEAM public school in Missouri.
My students range from middle class to poverty level, and some also experience violence in their neighborhoods on a daily basis. Sometimes music is the only solace to their day.
Despite their economic differences, all of my students are eager to express themselves through music. Every day they enter the music room with excitement and an eagerness to learn.
My choir has some exciting pieces they have prepared for our winter concert in December. Two of the pieces require sleigh bells, only we have no sleigh bells to play! We need sleigh bells so that we can provide the sound of a sleigh ride and to play while we are walkin' in a winter wonderland! We also need bright green paper to use for our winter concert program.
If my students had sleigh bells and green paper, then our concert would be complete!
Imagine the joy we will bring to so many as we ring our jingle bells - all will be merry and bright!
