Where Every Child Belongs

My students need 2 rugs. The A to Z Fun with Phonics Carpet will be used for each child to have a defined seat on the floor when we do whole class activities. The musical rug will be used for classroom instruction and games/activities to reinforce musical concepts.

I am privileged to teach Elementary Music to children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade, including Mild/Moderate Special Needs students.

With it being my first year to teach Elementary Music, I have discovered that it can be very challenging for my Kindergarten and 1st grade students and Special Needs students to form a circle on the floor for our class to sit in for classroom activities.

Therefore, I decided that it would be helpful to give my students a physical "guide" to help them seat themselves in a shape on the floor so that we can complete the activity as a group. Also, the musical rug will be a great way to get my kinesthetic and sensory students up and moving to really grasp musical symbols and words by being able to physically touch them on the musical rug.

Your help will ensure that my students each have an individualized space around the rug, creating a sense of belonging. You will also make it possible for my students who like to "get up and move" to learn about music symbols in other ways rather than simply "reading" about music.
