I use Music in my classroom. Students work or whisper talk in group work until the particular song (length determined by time needed) ends then all know that it is time to be silent. It has worked really well at keeping the kids on task, for getting their attention when their time is over, and getting focused back on me. It also helps in blocking the "extra" noises that seem to distract some kids (i.e. other groups talking, the lights humming, outside sounds, etc.) The students really enjoy hearing some of my "oldies" as well since most finish their task a little early and can focus on the music. Hope this helps!
