I teach 3rd grade and I always play music in the classroom. I tell them that “science” shows that classical music makes you smarter I have music playing in the morning when they enter & do their morning bell work. Also, I play music during writing time and other independent work times.

I play everything from Classical, Jazz, the Piano Guys, 2 Guys and a Cello... I always play instrumental. I use Amazon Prime Music and Pandora to stream from my laptop. Sometimes I let them choose, other times I just play it. I love how the students begin to develop preferences to music they might never be exposed to otherwise.

It’s really important and I’m mindful to have times of working in quiet. Students need to be able to work in silence as well.
