As a High School teacher I love finding ways to incorporate music into my lesson. A lot of times instead of setting a timer, I will find a 2 minute or 3 minute song and let my students know that they have until the end of the song before we move onto the next part of our lesson.
Since I am a teacher and a VZWBuzz ambassador, I had to share MY ONGOING list with all of you! Each month I do one sponsored post as party of the #VZWBuzz team and this is the one I chose to write about this October! I hope you enjoy it and share this post with other moms, teachers, and church groups!
I tried to use a Pandora station once, and then all of a sudden during my plan period the music had the worse cuss words I had heard. So grateful that I didn’t have my kids listening to it.
If you aren’t a teacher, but you have kids this is also a great list to keep on in the house when you want to shut the TV off and be productive or play with your kids! Music is the soundtrack of life right?
The issue with finding popular songs is that almost any upbeat song has many inappropriate lyrics. Then the songs that I thought were totally appropriate, once I sit down to listen to the word they are not. Also, there are those songs that don’t sing about anything bad and then all of a sudden they decide to throw in a cuss word.
So I have been working on a playlist of songs within the last few years that are upbeat and aren’t bad. By bad I mean that they don’t contain bad word and they don’t sing about drugs, sex, or alcohol.
So I created this list and I am continuing to add to it each day! I create my list using youtube and I just play the list through my speaker!
