## Reflection: Joy Reindeer Count - Section 3: Independent Practice

It is not always appropriate to play music while students are working, such as testing or stations; when the noise level is typically louder. I do often play music during times I feel are appropriate. In this case, I am using music to make my students feel happy and positive while at school. Who doesn't enjoy Christmas music at the holidays?! This music actually sets the mood for my classroom, which is a happy one!

Joy: Playing Music
