It is better to limit the music sessions to one or two during each class for it to have a refreshing rather than disturbing effect.
Discuss controversial topics, ask your students for their opinions and organise intensive brainstorming sessions to activate your students and offer them opportunities to express themselves.
Make it your habit to ask your students' opinions e.g. after reading sessions or scientific experiments, events they took part in, etc.
For example before your planned activities to encourage predicting and planning, or after the activities to promote reflection and reasoning.
Depending on your students’ age and stage of development, offer some attractive and modern resources, such as toys and learning equipment that will help keep your students busy and excited.
