The Alliance for Excellence funded the purchase of 25 Tenor Ukuleles for Ms. Cvitkovic’s 6th grade music students. This pilot program affords students the opportunity to not only learn a string instrument, but also to explore other world cultures.
While all students benefit from these instruments, those who are kinesthetic and tactile learners directly benefit from their engagement with the ukuleles. To further integrate the ukuleles into the curriculum and programming, Ms. C. has also created a Uke Club at LBMS. Ms. C. and her students are really enjoying their awarded Alliance grant of ukuleles! Uke on!
