Music in the Classroom!

First off a chair update! (I know most of you probably don't care too much, but I am so super excited!) I ripped off the old fabric with help from my sister and fiancé and then went to Ace to buy some spray paint! Then my fiancé sanded some spots and started to prime! Yay! I think it already is looking better!

Next, I love to use music in the classroom! So this linky is perfect! Thanks to Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness for hosting this linky!

Some of the greatest music I find is off of YouTube! It seriously has music for everything from math, to counting, to science and so on! 

1. Song about 3-D Shapes! I love it!

2. Song about the Planets! From Have Fun Teaching, in a video! Have fun teaching has tons of fun songs on their website and you can download them in many ways!

3. Song about Washington and Lincoln! This was really fun to use on President's Day!

For fun my mentor teacher would turn on songs from Disney movies! The kids loved this and I definitely want to do it with my class in the future! The song would start to play and the kids would guess which movie it was from, they thought it was the best thing!

I have not used this in my teaching, but I would really love to, it is HeidiSongs! I really enjoyed the Phonics songs and mentioned them in a prior post. Has anyone used her songs in their classroom? What other CDs of her would you recommend? 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to hop on over to Teaching Maddeness to join in on the fun!


  1. I'm your newest follower yay!! The kindergarten teacher at my school used HeidiSongs sing and spell the sight words. She loved them and so did the kids. My daughter was in her class last year and really enjoyed them.

  3. I think it's great to incorporate topic areas like Math and Sciene into elementary music education. I would also recommend getting the students moving and involved by having them play instruments along to the music.

  4. I love these. Dr. Jean has some great songs too!

    I love your blog. I would be blessed if you came to visit me and maybe even followed me back. =)

    I just shared some books that you can use to help build your school family.
