I love, love, love using music as both a learning tool and a brain break in the classroom! So when Alana at Special Teaching in the Middle created a link-up for showcasing this, I was all about it!
I'll start with a few science videos with catchy tunes that I use as anticipatory sets:
Hurricanes and Twisters
Biomes and Ecosystems
Phases of the Moon
Why Seasons Change
Now, here's the list of songs I use to reinforce math concepts.
Nonagon by They Might Be Giants: geometry/polygons
Geometry Quiz by Obie Leff
6's Song by Rockin' the Standards (6 multiplication facts review)
Seven Tables by Mr.G. & the Kiddie Crunk Crew (7 multiplication facts review)
Let's Do Them Eights by Math Man (8 multiplication facts review)
Aint No Party Like a Number Nine Party by Math Man (9 multiplication facts review)
Quadrilateral Dance by Rockin' the Standards (quadrilaterals)
The Place Value Rap by Rockin' the Standards
Perimeter Area by Rockin' the Standards
Measurement Song by Rockin' the Standards
How do you use music and videos in your classroom? I'd love to hear your creative ideas!
