Bring Cultural Diversity into your Classroom through Music
Invite families to bring in music that represents their home culture. They might bring in CD's, teach you some songs, or bring instruments from a different country. Overtime, build your collection of multicultural music and instruments. A great place to start is with the Putumayo Kids World Music collection. This children’s record label introduces children to other cultures through music that entertains, educates and inspires curiosity about the world. The songs are carefully selected and feature child-friendly lyrics and rhythms by exceptional international artists (PUT269K). We also offer beautiful sets of multicultural instruments from Jamtown, a fair trade supplier who works closely with Becker's to bring quality music into the schools.
