Whilst teaching my class about people who help us and discussing the motivation and history of Florence Nightingale, I also taught my class a song for motivation.
Jimmy cliff… you can get it if you really want!
The children really enjoyed listening to a different genre of music and absolutely love singing it now. I discussed the words with them too, I also play it in a morning whilst they complete their morning activity.
Music can bring so much joy, happiness and motivation for children. I think it’s a great way of lifting their spirits and giving them a love of learning!
Why not give it a try and see if it lifts the spirits in your classroom!
