Turn the radio on...and listen to the music!!

Linking up with Amanda's Turn the Music Up Linky Party at Teaching Maddeness...I also love to play music in my classroom.  From day one, we are ROCKING out in room 202.  Starting each day with a little good morning music puts my kiddos in the best moods.  One of my favorites is Good Morning Exercises for Kids !  I love to see them sing while they are doing their morning work.  Sometimes I even have to pull a marker out for my microphone and chime in!
Throughout the day we sing different songs that go along with our 2nd grade standards.  Here is my top 10 list of my favs:
1.  Miss Jenny songs...she has a cd for 6+1 writing traits, math, science, and phonics
2.  All Kidz Bop cds
3. Do the Brain Wave...great brain exercises to do with students before tests, to wind down, or to get pumped up
4.  Dr. Jean cds
5.  Jewel's- The Merry Go Round
6.  Dole's 5 A Day...awesome songs for nutrition unit
7.  Hobby Lobby's instrumental music...they are $9.99 and with the 40% off coupon, you can't beat that deal!
8.  The Laurie Berkner Band...cute sing along songs
9. The new BRAVE soundtrack 
10.  United Streaming has a great selection of music
-If you do a search for a concept that you are teaching...look on the left hand side and you will see an song section.  There are a TONS of cute songs.  We love the "Parts of Speech Slide" and many, many more!

I'll be guest blogging for Amanda next week and will include some more FUN music that I use in my classroom:)
