From the Request Line:
I am a 4th and 5th grade teacher and I am looking for music to use during transitions between subjects, moving from their desks to the carpet, clean up time, etc. A lot of the music I have found either winds the students up or it’s too old for them to know.
I received the request above from Polly on the Request Line. After a few emails back and forth, it was determined that she wanted to try some type of hip hop beat with her students. I have a feeling it might get the kids wound up, but if that is what the kids are listening to these days…the hip-hop, then the hip-hop is what they shall get to move to the carpet or to form a line. Good luck keeping the kids in order while listening to these five songs. They are all instrumental versions that last between 30-50 seconds.
