Glue copies of rhymes, songs, or finger plays to old CDs or 4 ½” circles.  Place in a gift bag or box and write “Juke Box” on the front.  When you’ve got a few extra minutes pull out the “Juke Box.”  Give a child a pretend quarter to put in the “Juke Box” and choose a song or rhyme.

According to research, most classrooms waste 20% of the day having children wait, line up, wash their hands, clean up, yada yada.  What a super simple way to take advantage of those teachable moments!
