Slice #26: Music for Learning
I’m the type of teacher who loves to have music playing in the background in my classroom. There is something so soothing about it, and it truly helps the kids to focus more. I’ve found that when there is no music, they talk more and get more distracted – almost as if they feel like they need to fill in the noise. 🙂 I play everything from classical to movie soundtracks to fun, upbeat songs with words to set the mood. Music is a big part of who I am and I love that I can incorporate that into the classroom.
