Music for the Classroom
I recently went to a workshop where the presenter used a music group called The Vitamin String Quartet on Pandora. It. Is. Awesome! The quartet plays pop songs with strings instruments, so there are no words. I love having music in my classroom, and this eliminates any words that might not be appropriate while letting them hear familiar songs. I really like that it gives orchestra and music a fun spin. The station on Pandora rotates through other musical groups, but the songs are really fun! Try it out next week and let me know what you think!
Music for the Treadmill
As many of you know, my winter is filled with a lot of treadmill runs, so I need music. What you might not know, is that I am extremely cheap. I refuse to buy songs on iTunes that I can hear on the radio, so Pandora is my go-to. I came across a station on Pandora called Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout. What I love about this station is that the music changes so I don't get into a rut, but it's all pretty upbeat. I need high intensity songs and the factor of the unknown is a great surprise when in the middle of a run!
And last, but certainly not least is Farley's February Currently! Woohoo! Can you believe it's already February? We're getting ready to send home Quarter 3 mid-terms! What happened to this school year!?
Stop by and visit Farley, meet some other bloggers, and learn something along the way!
