Music and Ms. Beesley's Classroom
Music Teacher LeighAnn Beesley said,

"Sometimes I have an activity planned that is often loud even in a music classroom. Students with sensory impairments have difficulty concentrating. We use the keyboard as a differentiated activity for students so that they can still participate, but with a different instrument. The headphones help to keep the noise to an acceptable level. There are multiple times that these students use the keyboard, even when singing rhymes because they can
sing along with the keyboard. It is great!"
