Help me give my students the tactile experience of keeping the beat and color practice! Many of my students are nonverbal and struggle with fine motor skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach K-6 general music and 5th grade band at a school south of Seattle where 89% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. A majority of our students are bilingual and thrive off of bringing different cultures into our music classroom. I will strive to provide music education that everyone can access, understand, and enjoy.
I came into my classroom this summer as a first year teacher, realizing that we are lacking in many materials in order to create an equal and opportune access to music education.
My goal is to create a fun-filled, functioning and equitable classroom for my students.
I am passionate and determined about providing these kids what they deserve in order to achieve success in the music classroom.
The colorful bands will be a game changer in my music room. Not only can these be used for my general music classes, they can also heighten the experience for my special needs music classes.
Many of my SPED students are nonverbal and struggle with fine motor skills so I want to provide a tactile way for them to physically feel the beat in music class.
These rubber bands will make it possible for my students to progress in keeping the beat and feeling the beat on their own. I will use these in all courses but I especially want to provide this alternative way of feeling and finding the beat to my students who need a different approach.
