Free Songs for Teaching and Learning

One of the best and most effective ways to engage students is with music and movement. I just finished a training at my school regarding Kagan structures. Dr. Spencer Kagan has over 50 years of experience with cooperative learning and brain-based learning techniques. Using Kagan structures in the classroom means implementing Class Builders, Team Builders, Energizers, and Brain Breaks.Below are some free educational songs from HaveFunTeaching.com that you can use with Whole Group, Small Group, or Independent learning that will engage your students and get them motivated to learn!
