I love to use music with transitions. In the morning, as students come in and get settled, I play " It's a Beautiful Morning" by The Rascals.
It just makes me happy to start the day with that song!
At the end of the day, I play Celebration by Kool and the Gang. You know, to celebrate our learning that day and because it's time to go home!Nothing like ending the day with a dance party!
During clean up, I use the Dora Clean Up song. I like this one the best. It's the most up beat clean up song I could find!
During the day, I love to play videos from Harry's Kindergarten on You Tube. He has so many educational songs I just love. Check out his videos! I especially love the doubles songs and subtract with a pirate!
I also love songs by Have Fun Teaching. My students love the Counting by 5's song. They dance and don't even realize they're learning!
