Change the moods of children when needed
Have you ever gone to a religious service, heard a song, and your mood completely changed? Have you ever gotten into your car after a tough day at work, turned on some music, and suddenly you were singing along?
Music is powerful. Use it in your classroom. Use quiet music to calm children when they need calming. When children are antsy and starting to be disruptive, use happy music to change “the beat” of your classroom. If you don’t have anything with which to play music, simply sing requests to students. Clap your hands to a fun made-up beat and have them imitate you. Best of all, at the end of the day when you are tired, remember to play or sing some of your favorite songs. It can transform your mood too.
Have a great day. You are a difference maker.
