On the weeks the music therapist doesn't come to our room, I teach a version of music therapy. I am in no way trained to be a music therapist, but I do my best as I see the benefits and wanted to keep the consistency week to week. One of my favorite sites to utilize with the kids is www.dreamenglish.com . Matt (the singer in the videos) has a bunch of songs/videos that are fun and educational while still being easy for the kids to follow. Some of the songs even have printable activities to go along with them. One of our favorites is the "What Can You Do?" action song. Some of our other favorite artists are Dr. Jean, Greg & Steve, and Jim Gill. We like to use instruments and try to incorporate listening skills and movement.
How about you? What do you do to incorporate music into your classroom?
