Classroom Theme Song Ideas

We love music in our classroom.  In fact, we love it so much it plays almost all day long.  In fact, we recently got new speakers and we’ve had some complaints about noise!   From our energetic and loud morning arrival playlist, to our Rock A Bye Baby lullabies for writer’s workshop, to Katy Perry’s ROAR to end our day, music is a major part of our classroom.  We even have a classroom theme song!  Do you?
Why?  Well first of all, music is fun.  And it’s time we bring more fun back into our classrooms.  Seriously ya’ll, we work our kids so hard so it’s time we start having more fun and music is an easy to have some fun.

But there are some other important reasons….

Music sets a positive mood in your classroom.  My kids spend the morning eating, working and singing and dancing because we have our music playing.  That sets the tone for the day.  It says that we’re happy and excited to be at school!   Happy and excited!   That’s what I want my ‘staches to feel when they walk into our classroom every day!
Music helps improve focus and attention.
Music enhances student interactions.
And…having a class theme song helps develop a strong sense of community.  And isn’t that the goal?  For our students to bond and form a strong, happy, loving, caring family?
All of those benefits just from music!
 Our theme song is Roar from Katy Perry.  I chose this song because the world is going to hear my ‘staches ROAR every day.    I want my kids to know that they have a voice, that they  matter and sure, we might get knocked down, but we’ll get back up and keep on fighting!   We end everyday with a dance party while jamming to ROAR!   We turn it up loud and we sing and dance to celebrate our learning and accomplishments for the day!

So do you have a classroom theme song?  What is it?

I recently asked this question on my Facebook page and got some great answers!   I even added several new songs to our playlist.  And I’m not ashamed to admit it but MMMBOP is one of those songs.  No shame.
I compiled those songs into a list!  Hopefully you’ll find a great theme song for your class or at least some new songs to add into your playlists!

Here are 45 ideas for class theme songs!  


(Note:  I have not listened to every word on every song!   Just sayin….)
