JazzSLAM was an amazing show that captivated the attention of all students!  

The students said they learned about the history of music and musicians. How music is related to math (fractions). I have observed in my classroom the students relating fractions to all types of music. They are incorporating the history of music into their writing essays.

My students learned test taking strategies, fractions, beat and rhythm. They talked about how they learned about the history of blues.

 
 

Mr. Jones
4th & 5th Grade Teacher,
Plantation Elementary
(November 2017)

The students were reminded of the same narrative writing elements that are taught in the classroom.

One teacher commented - "This is the most fun we had learning writing".

 
 

Mrs. Silensky
5th Grade Teacher,
Horizon Elementary
(December 2017)

They didn't realize there were so many skills inside music. They thought "Music was just music!"

 
 

Ms. Wilton
4th Grade Teacher,
Margate Elementary
(October 2017)

The students were unaware that there are fractions in music beats. They were completely dumbfounded that even percentages are part of music beats as well.

Thank you for taking the opportunity to present an entertaining performance that took our students on a journey into the world of music which provided an interactive opportunity for our students to practice making the connection between music/songs along with roots in social studies, language arts and mathematics.
