My Students

I teach music at a Title I school in suburban South Carolina. The students make up forty-seven classes in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, including special ed, regular ed, and gifted students. Many of these students come from low-income​ families and they rely on teachers or the school for their materials. All of my students love new experiences. They are always eager to get involved in learning.

Our mascot is the “Busy Bee” and we certainly stay busy trying to make every moment count in music class!

My Project

I would love to continue incorporating the creativeness of building with LEGO bricks into our music classroom! As educators, we are constantly striving to motivate our students. What motivates students more than “playing” with LEGO bricks? I can imagine my students creating music notes, showing the concepts of high/low, and composing rhythm with these bricks and base plates.

These LEGO materials would be so motivating for my students.

My students were so excited about our previous LEGO project being funded, that we are asking for additional bricks, base plates, and storage containers. This will allow us to expand the size of our LEGO wall, as well as create individual grab and go kits for students to "build" rhythms. The smaller base plates and small containers filled with LEGO bricks will allow each child to create the musical notes we are learning about in a hands-on way. I know that this will increase their retention when learning about rhythm.

Thank you for supporting music and the fine arts in public education. These materials will be used with hundreds of students each year. You really do make a difference in the lives of my students!
