Creating Music in Kindergarten

The kindergarten students in Karen VanVleet’s class at J.W. Reason Elementary brought homemade instruments to class this week. They performed the Idina Menzel song “Let It Go.” Mrs. VanVleet recorded the students playing their music alongside a clip from the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show. It was an opportunity for the students to create their own music in their own way. Mrs. VanVleet tweeted the video to Jimmy Fallon, who in turn replied to the class. While some of the little ones may not understand who Jimmy Fallon is, it gave the teachers and staff quite a thrill. Teaching students how to use social media the safe way prepares even the youngest student to be Ready for Tomorrow.
