Great blog topic - esp for those of us who are counting the days until spring break!
Thanks for the link to PP games. We play lots of diff games in all levels of my ESL/English classes. One of my kids' favorites is grammar or vocabulary basketball. I have recently added golf to the mix! Anything I can do to get my kids ACTIVELY engaged in their learning is a hit w/my crew!
I don't do this w/music, but a number of my colleagues do. They'll have '80s Friday or Beach Song Monday. The kids LOVE the theme days and look forward to them. I also use music extensively in my classroom. My favorite purchase was of TV theme songs. The kids know that it's time to finish up their warm-ups when they hear "Pee Wee's Playhouse." Music is an awesome classroom management tool.
Thanks again for a great blog! BTW, only 18 more days until spring break! :D
I know some teachers who do the basketball game, which seems to work really well!
I also like the TV theme song idea. I think I'm going to look into that!
