To allow time for all students to enter the classroom, relax and catch their breath after their previous class, it helped to play music as the class started. This was easy to do in MS Teams, by creating a Meeting,>sharing the screen>include computer sound. (See below)
Sometimes, I used songs suggested from Facebook groups, then a song that may have been applicable to a World recognized day. It could have been some of the student favourite song suggestions and sometimes I looked for fun themes such as songs that signified the actual day of the week as in the following. Note that some are suitable for secondary students and not primary.
Monday: Monday Monday The Mamas and the Papas
Tuesday: – Ruby Tuesday The Rolling Stones
Wednesday: Wednesday Song for Children
Thursday: Thursday by Jim Croce
Friday on my Mind by the Easybeats
Did you use music for classroom entry? How did you choose the songs? What was the reaction of the students?
