Music in the Classroom!

My students need headphones to use during independent work. I offer almost every assignment to be done in groups, but some of my students feel more comfortable working alone and use music to focus their attention

My Students

My students are a classroom of energetic, creative, bright, and funny 6th graders who take pride in their work inside and outside the classroom. They make every day more fun than the one prior.

They are the type of class that will take your request and run with it.

They love showing their creative side, while also showing off their brains and great work ethic. They have shown me such amazing things with the small materials we have, I can't wait to see what they do next!

My Project

The classroom can be a very social place. For students who enjoy working with others, class assignments are an outlet to not only increase their knowledge but socialize with their classmates. Some students, however, enjoy working alone and being able to focus on the work at hand.

I believe that music can be an amazing tool to be used in every classroom, and is sometimes not utilized to its fullest extent.

Students are able to find music they not only enjoy, but that helps make even the most frustrating assignments more enjoyable. An environment can go from chaotic and distracting to peaceful and stimulating with the right soundtrack. I want every student to feel as though I am doing everything I possibly can to make them comfortable in our class and able to do their best work.
