This weekend I worked. Some on scrapbooking, a lot on schoolwork and during all of it I had music playing. Although I am not an expert, I do love a good playlist and through my many connections I have found some excellent playlists created by fabulous teachers.
What is your soundtrack? Music changes the mood. It can be a happy little buzz or an inspirational hum. Sometimes the students will sing along even if it is instrumental. 5th graders love music, but I have been reluctant to allow them to listen to personal music- you tube is not my friend. I do put in classroom music during some work times or transition times.
I worry about those sensory affected students- does it make it harder to concentrate?
We all have a soundtrack though …different seasons of my life attract different songs. I wonder what the next one will be?
