    I LOVE playing music in my classroom. Sometimes I will play soft instumental music to calm the room and at other times I will play upbeat songs. My kids LOVED the Finding Nemo CD. It has some fun beach-themed instrumentals, and also had some fun songs with words as well. I played CDs like that when the kids were working on a simple coloring/painting project or something that doesn't require alot of thinking. They loved to "dance" in their seats as they listened to the music and worked on their project. I also have a Greg and Steve CD that has movement songs on it, such as "Shadow Dancing" and "Animal Action". If the kids were restless and I could tell they needed 5 minutes to stretch and have fun, I would play one of those songs. They just knew that they could dance to it as long as there was only whisper talking. Otherwise they would get too out of control. That CD is a HIT!
