    Hi!

    I have lots of preschool experience and am going to be teaching 5th grade next year, what sort of music (if any) do you use in your classroom. I loved music and dancing and would love to incorporate some songs but need some ideas, my school is low SES and urban.

    Thanks

    I play classical or quiet jazz sometimes during reading or writing workshop.

    For a fun brain break, we play the cha-cha slide on youtube and everyone gets up and dances! I only do it once or twice a semester so it doesn't lose its special-ness.
