I have an iPod that I use...but also sometimes use Pandora. Most the
Indie music works for that age group...and surprisingly they also like
the "oldies"...60s and up.
My upper school students can bring their iPods, but know what is
acceptable in my room (will often jump up to pass over a song...they are
very good about it). They also like the "oldies" but will even go back
to the Rat Pack and company. Very fun.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] classroom music
Hello Fellow Art Teachers,
I have been helped time and time again by reading my daily
teacherartexchange emails. Its been a great help as a young teacher to
find resources and to confirm my classroom practices.
I am curious if others play music in their rooms as students work. I
am one to always have background noise but am struggling to find
music, other than classical or jazz, that is kid friendly (4th-8th).
Any suggestions of iTunes Radio stations, cds or records?
