Help me give my students temple blocks to round out the percussion parts in one of our pieces for our spring concert. A thunder drum will help my younger students tell the story

We have a brand new fifth grade band program with the most motivated students ever. They are committed to making huge progress on their instruments and as a band. I've watched these students keep each other accountable for bringing instruments to and from school. They are excited to play every day and can't wait to keep learning!
This is their first experience with band and I am committed to making it a quality experience that inspires a life long love of music.
We are small, but we are mighty and we have a lot of fun.
These two percussion instruments help students add a new level of texture to their performances. We need temple blocks for our fifth grade band students to perform a piece about a clock. Temple blocks provide the perfect sound effect of a clock ticking. 5th grade choir is learning a piece about rain and they have the chance to create a thunderstorm during the piece. Adding percussion to the performance for choir adds depth to their musical learning.
We are gradually building our new music program, adding instruments as we need them in order to give students a truly well rounded musical education.
Instruments are to a music room as paper and pencils are to a grade level classroom. We need them to make sure that our students are having the best education we can offer.
