You know that classroom that everyone hates being next to? The classroom where there is always so much noise? The classroom where the kids are singing almost all the time? That’s my classroom.
We start our morning by singing Teaching and so Fourth’s morning song! Check her out on Teachers Pay Teachers for some great resources! The kids come in and we sing. I can’t imagine starting our day any other way. It really puts a positive spin on the day and starts us off right. Then we have a few minutes of quiet while they are reading and working on morning work.
We sing different songs throughout the day. Anytime we are learning a new subject, I try and find a song to go with it. We sang a song about Quadrilaterals and everyone can tell you what a quadrilateral is! Check it out here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzJ6l-Hr7lc&index=12&list=PLQTYXwEJEfjc6afLRhI1YFeNHagXWifzb
We also sing a Verb song, even and odd song, and basically any song you can think of. The kids BEG for these songs! They are awesome.
Sometimes you just need to say, sorry for the noise. We’re learning.
