Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Ain't No Mountain High Enough!!! - Section 1: Sing It, Diana!!!!

 

I have never really used music in my lessons until the last couple of years and even then, only quiet music during their independent working time.  I think I was afraid of "wasted instructional time" and getting the students back after the singing time.  

What I have found, though, is that by playing music during a lesson, I am creating links for my students to recall information.  During the Good Reader lessons, I asked my students how they could remember song lyrics but not what they read in a text.  HELLO!!!  There was my answer!!  

No, Diana Ross' song doesn't have anything to do with the formation or types of mountains, but it does give my students a starting point for recalling information they learned while reading a very technical text!!
