Wireless Music Needed!

My students need music in class! Music can help students focus, can provide them with an enjoyable learning environment, and can make the whole learning experience fun!

My Students

I work in a very special Title 1 school in Murray, Utah. These kids are extra special to me and every educator in this building. We value our students because they have to work extra hard to succeed. They live in an area with a lower socio-economic status; these kids may not get encouragement at home like many other children in school. These students have to work harder than most due to their home lives and backgrounds. Many of our students have either witnessed or experienced verbal, physical and emotional abuse in their homes or in their communities.

In order to help these students enjoy their educational experience, we must make things more lighthearted sometimes, as it is often that our school is the only escape from their tough home lives.

My Project

A wireless speaker system will improve the entire atmosphere of the classroom! I can also use music as positive reinforcement and rewards since the students enjoy it so much. Not only do the students enjoy it, but it makes them excited about learning! Music can help improve brain function. For example, classical music has been shown to increase brain activity. In order to make our class more fun, we want some fun music!

With music, the students will be able to enjoy the school experience a bit more, in addition to adding a little fun to our classroom.
