Miss Mississippi Visits the Collaborative Classrooms

On January 17th, Emmie Perkins brought her “Music is Medicine” message to TELA students at the  Eva Covington Head Start Center, Charleston Elementary School and the West Tallahatchie Head Start Center.

From the The Sun-Sentinel:

“For my younger kids, we do a lot of literature and music combined to teach them that music can be used in the classroom to make learning fun,” Perkins noted.  “We also do exercises with movement and maracas, because it’s proven that it is very beneficial to move and get involved in music when they are in the middle of their school day as a little break and a way to stay engaged.”
