Mrs. Chambless from Saint Johns FL is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

What's Shakin' in the Music Room?

My students need shaker eggs to keep the beat while listening to music.

My Students

My students love to make music! Exploring melodies on the instruments is an integral part of our hands-on music curriculum.

Through playing easily accessible instruments like xylophones and drums, students develop their sense of pitch and rhythm, increasing their musical ability.

They learn teamwork and experience the power of being part of an ensemble.

You can "show and tell" a student about music, but when we allow them to become involved, that is when real learning begins and a love of music is born.

My Project

What's better than one shaker in one hand? One shaker in in BOTH hands! This wonderful Elephant basket filled with shaker eggs will allow us to have more than enough eggs for our students.

Shaker eggs are one of the easiest ways for students to get involved while listening to music.

We can talk about the beat, we can define the beat, but until we "feel" the beat, we really don't get it.

Every child is born with a musical ability - it's up to us to make sure that develop that natural skill. Let's get shaken' and get it done!
