Ribbons, Beanbags, Parachutes - Oh My!
School: Oxbow Elementary
My school is a Title 1 school. We are lucky to have a great assortment of instruments and we love to use them. Unfortunately, we only have a few older beanbags and some scarves for movement activities. Children need to move to experience music in different ways. I would love to be able to get some rainbow ribbon wands, some wrist scrunchies with ribbons, and some chiffon hoops to find different ways to engage students in expressing their impressions of music. I would also purchase a stretchy band and a parachute, which help in experiencing music as a whole class and foster teamwork in smaller groups. Some new beanbags will be a nice addition for all the fun beanbag songs and steady beat activities. My students are eager little learners who love to wiggle to music. I would love to give them some special props to channel their energy into and experience the beauty in music.
