Play is Instrumental
Children move to their own beat. Adding GT Jams® musical instruments to your playground inspires creativity and brings unique music and movement opportunities outdoors! GT Jams® provides intergenerational and inclusive play experiences that are sensory-rich and encourage social interaction between children, family and community members. Modeled after traditional African and Caribbean instruments, each with its own unique sound, GT Jams® allows children to discover the joy of music while encouraging healthy physical activity through free play or guided play activities from the GT Jams® Playbook. GameTime is committed to offering resources to help bring learning outdoors in meaningful ways!
The GT Jams® Playbook is a standards-based curriculum that meets the national standards for music and physical education, providing simple indoor and outdoor classroom connections to bring learning to the playground in new and exciting ways. This resource provides easy to implement activities for music or physical education teachers to extend learning, and offers cross-curricular activities perfect for after school programs, summer camps or recess!
Add a fun component to your play system, create an outdoor classroom or promote inclusion by adding an accessible freestanding event to your play area. GT Jams® offers a fun, flexible way to add music and physical activity to your playground where children and adults of all ages and abilities can have fun and be successful!
