Sometimes students just need to be still and calm. What a better way to teach them then through peaceful music! I have them lay down and even close their eyes if they please. Students are not allowed to talk and I tell them to lay as still as possible. This is Kindergarten, so they do get a little squirmy sometimes! Before I begin the activity, I tell them to reflect on the day, their families, what they’ll do this weekend, or things that make them happy. It’s a good time for them to reflect and also learn how to make themselves feel good when they’re just not having a good day (Which, hey! Everyone has bad days)! Everyone could use this in their lives!
