Happy Wednesday!


Pinterest and Facebook seem to be full of these hilarious ecards! When I saw this one I laughed out loud and knew I had to share it with all of you blog stalkers. Since it is mid-week I am exhausted, still not feeling great and have 83 more things on my to-do list I am making this post short and sweet!


Sportify is a music streaming site! Megan (my part time ITRT) introduced me to it today! Well, she actually mentioned it and I am now obsessed! It reminds me a tiny bit of Pandora with a twist of iTunes. It is a free download and you can create a playlist of specific songs or subscribe to a genre of music radio for continuous play. You can search music by the artist, album title, song title, genre or playlists. It is also social and can be linked up with your Facebook account so your friends can see what is on your playlist. Due to the fact that I have WAY too many usernames and passwords I just linked it up with Facebook. 

My 1st graders loved listening to music. During writing we listened to "brain music" (wordless music - instrumental or nature sounds). I would often play music on Friday's during our catch up time and my class last year would do JUST ABOUT ANYTHING to earn a dance party. Kids LOVE music! As I make my way around the building I have heard lots of music playing in classrooms. 

When I peaked into Alex's room (The School Potato) her students were listening to music during independent work time! I commented how much I liked the music and she shared that it was popular songs without words. I can't remember the exact name of the tracks she had BUT I did remember the keyword she said, "lullabies." I quickly did a search in Spotify and found TONS of lullabies! Baby Lullabye Ensamble had so many popular tunes in lullabye form. I am in love with them and I cannot wait to play soft music in the lab as students work. 

Happy Wednesday and I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
