Music is incredibly helpful during transitions and quiet work times. We have a paid spotify account that we use to access music without commercial interruptions. In our classroom, we use an instrumental version of the Andy Griffith theme song as our Clean Up song. It’s just long enough for the children to clean up their work or play areas, but still short enough where they want to finish quickly in order to make it back to their carpet spot on time.
During Quiet Work Time, we often use Rockabye Baby. Rockabye Baby utilizes the xylophone to create instrumental, peaceful covers of modern songs. The kids love it! It is like a child version the Vitamin String Quarter.
