How I Use It
I use this tool to reinforce and extend knowledge of topics that we are learning in class. Most of the songs are fun and engaging. Every once in awhile I preview a song that I don't think is going to work for my students' needs, but this usually isn't the case.
My Take
Most of the songs we use are fun and engaging. Often the students ask to listen to it again and again. The visual aspect, whether it is actual footage or animation, is typically enjoyable to watch and the hip-hop-based music is great for my 6th graders.
