Using Songs to Boost Lesson Motivation

Freedom Foundation was recently featured in TES where we revealed our top ten list of songs that help motivate pupils as they returned to the classroom last Monday. Music can create calmness that makes children feel safe and secure which, in turn, can lead to them interacting and participating more. We split the list into songs for motivation on a Monday morning, midweek motivation and end of the week motivation.

For motivation on a Monday morning

1. Shine by Emili Sande

2. Move on Up by Curtis Mayfield

3. High Hopes by Panic! at the Disco

For midweek motivation

4. Smile by Jungle

5. Happy by Pharrell Williams

6. Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine

7. Giants by Dermot Kennedy

For motivation at the end of the week

8. Friday by Riton & Nightcrawlers

9. Stronger by Sam Feldt (featuring Ke$ha)

10. I Feel Good by James Brown
