Every now and then the energy in my classroom is so intense that I feel like I need a rubber mallet to keep whacking the moles back into their holes.
When this happens I do one of two things: release energy or soothe energy. To release our energy we use one of the dance videos on GoNoodle.
To soothe our energy we use a variety of songs. I have shown a few of our current favorites below. You want your students to be feel calm but not so relaxed that they will go to sleep. :)
It is important that they hear only the music and not be stimulated by the videos, so turn those projectors off!
Seriously, music is so powerful. You will be amazed at the difference in your students level of focus after taking a few minutes out of your day to listen to music.
Do you have any favorite songs that you listen to in your classroom?
