SOL day 14Today, I had songs in my head that I haven’t heard in a while. It made me think of how/why tunes appear in people’s heads. Some days, I wake up with a song or just start humming, and am shocked by what tune or song it is. Often, it is a song that I heard on the radio earlier in the week or that day, but when a song from months or years ago comes in, it makes me wonder… There must be some trigger in the back of your mind that is so subconscious you don’t even notice it.With children, it is important for them to have appropriate songs in their subconscious because they might learn words that shouldn’t be spoken at their age. I want to have a classroom that incorporates music with transitions, as background music, and with books to help students become aware of music around them (even if it is not current).
