End of Year Video Song List and Music in the Classroom
What kind of music do you like to listen to? Do you play music in your classroom? I LOVE music and I find that I am playing it at all times! Instead of the TV going on full blast in our house-it is Music Choice, a set of music stations that play uninterrupted songs based on our favorite musical genre. In our house, it is the Pop station or 320. My husband might argue that the songs that my children and I sing at the top of our lungs are NOT his favorite choice of music, but regardless, we listen, we sing, and of course, we dance!
At this time of year I am always in search of the perfect songs of the year to add to the End of Year Video I always create for my 6th graders that are moving onto middle school. I take pictures throughout the course of the year, and at the end, using Windows Movie Maker, I create a video with the best songs I can find to celebrate our year together. The video is played at the end of our 6th Grade Promotion Ceremony and wraps up all of the hard work, activities, field trips, and day-to-day moments that made our year so special. I LOVE putting this together because it helps me to reflect on all of the work we accomplished and all of the fun memories we will always share. I guess I am a bit of a sap...
If you need a classroom brain break-I love this video! Get your kiddos up and watch'em dance!
