I have some diverse age classes at two of my schools (in other words K-2, 3-4, 3-6, etc.) Finding things for them to do can sometimes be a challenge. I don't want some students bored while other struggle. I always look for diverse songs that will cover several things at once since I only see the classes for either 30 or 45 minutes a week.
