My students and I love to jam. At the end of each day we listen to our class clean up song. For most of this year we have listened to Katy Perry’s Roar. After winter break we started playing Let It Go. Watching 28 third graders clean up a classroom while singing Let It Go is a sight to see.
I’ve always wanted to have a classroom where listening to music was something we did regularly, but it never seems to work out. I’ll try it for a couple of days and then it slowly loses steam. Not with this year’s class. They are all about the music. During writing workshop we listen to classical music and during math workshop we listen to pop music. The kids all it no-word music and word music.
You can find our class playlist below. As I update our jams they will automatically update in the playlist, so feel free to jam alongside us.
I’d love to hear how you incorporate music into your learning environments.
