I LOVE using music in my classroom! It makes me more excited and the students more excited about what we are learning.
I love using Jack Hartmann's cds. They rock!! Here are a couple of my favorites.
Love Hip-Hop Alphabet song and Freeze It.
Love using Movin' 2 Math with calendar. Adds more excitement while calendar is going on.
Love using Rhymin' to the Beat for the Nursery Rhymes. My favorite is Baa Baa Black Sheep. It has a guitar in the song and the students love playing air guitar with the song.
We love listening to Kidz Bop and dancing along during our 5 minutes of fun.
Another song I love it Ice Cream and Cake. I use this on the days we have birthdays. I teach them a dance to go with it on our first birthday for the year. Then randomly throughout the day I play the song. When they hear the song they get to stop what they are doing and stand up and dance. Just a little more fun for a birthday.
