Mrs. Statezny from Elcho WI is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ukeleles for All!

My students need these ukeleles to learn a string instrument, as we do not have orchestra as an option at our school. Students will learn aural skills by tuning strings and fine motor skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach 4K-8 general music in a small rural school. The community of the school is wonderful, teachers work together and provide a safe, happy atmosphere for the kids. The poverty rate in this area is very high. They come to music enthusiastic and ready to learn. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I see every student in grades k-5!

I have been developing and using music learning stations to encourage student learning and collaboration.

We work together, in small groups and individually in spaces throughout the classroom.

My Project

I am excited to start teaching ukelele to my upper elementary and middle school classes. With the popularity and success of Grace Vanderwaal, there are so many songs and websites that focus on ukelele. Students will be working on aural skills by learning to tune the strings to the correct pitches, along with fine motor skills playing the notes/chords on the ukelele.

We will learn to play as a large group together with all students having an instrument to play.

As we learn, we will have the opportunity to move into smaller groups and work, depending on ability level and interest in what songs to play.
