End of School Random Song Generator

Well, we made it! Summer vacation is upon us here in Maryland! For those of you who still have a week or more remaining, don't despair: now is the time for fun review activities. Time to celebrate all of the great learning that has taken place in your classroom over the course of this past school year.

I wanted to share a review activity that was very successful in my music room for the past two weeks: the random song generator!

I used the Smart technology random name generator and plugged in the names of the most popular songs, games, and listening activities for each grade level.

In class, I had a student (this can be a good behavior incentive for unruly classes during the last week) come up and press the "select" button. It will then randomly pick a song for you to sing.

I did this with PreK up through 2nd grade and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I'm happy to share this SmartNotebook file with you; to put in your own songs, simply double-click each song title.
