...every time a student experiences success in the rhythm or recorder centers, their hippo campus is saying "this is cool, I like it, I can succeed with it, and I want more because it meets my needs."

Additional Information

Centers transform the elementary music classroom into the elementary music conservatory! WHAT FUN!

Centers, La Belle Elem. Cobb County Ga.

Students will see centers as a REWARD for going through the formats. Centers develop individual strengths at the student's pace. The number of centers you have is determined by the available space and resources. Using the Letter Names Format, each instrument becomes a center; keyboard, tone bells, xylophones, Orff instruments, recorders, guitar, ukulele, even the classroom piano, where the objective becomes transferring vocal skills to fine motor movements. Paper center puzzles make great listening center activities where the student may listen to a specific composer or examples of musical elements while translating symbols or Greek letters into English, developing language skills and reinforcing music curriculum objectives. Game centers reinforce music concepts throughout the year. Center time is also an excellent opportunity to work one on one or with smaller groups who may need additional practice in voice or any music related activity.

"I also sense that you are doing a great job in Selling , The Hippo campus. This part of the brain is for short term memory. It decides whether the knowledge/activity is worth having or doing. If it decides yes, then the knowledge/skill is gradually transferred to the cerebral cortex or long term memory. So every time a student experiences success in the rhythm or recorder centers, their hippo campus is saying "this is cool, I like it, I can succeed with it, and I want more because it meets my needs." William Glasser would say you are meeting their needs for belonging, power, fun, freedom, and in a sense for survival."
