    I want to get some fun music for my 2nd grade classroom. What songs and/or CD's do you all like?

    Anything by Tom Chapin....
    check out the website: http://64.23.8.93/index.html

    My kids' favs are the Library Song, R-E-C-Y-C-L-E, Ghost of Bleakhouse, Christmas on the Mall, Cameling, This Pretty Planet, Backward Birthday Party, Clean Machine, Zig Zag - there are tons! Warning - they get stuck in your head (and in your heart)!
    They also stand the test of time - my own kids still love them. In fact, I gave a CD as a graduation gift to a friend's daughter who has always loved Tom's music.

    I think it depends on what you are using it for. I find that even at the 3rd grade level they still enjoy things like Greg and Steve, Imagination Movers and other like that.

    Depends on what we're doing. If it's math, maybe Mozart or something classical. Around Christmas, Manheim Steamroller. We also listen to music from different cultures if it fits with something we're reading or writing about. I have Hawaiian, Italian, and Mexican cds.

    I use many fifties mixes- clean lyrics and fun songs.
