A friend of mine just posted a link to a video on facebook featuring kiddos from a DC school. Take three minutes of your day to watch this rap that the students created and your day will be made!
"Proficiency doesn't happen mysteriously; we take math and reading very seriously; like a dinosaur we study hard core; when we step through the door we get challenged some more!"
I can't get the song out of my head now.. it makes me smile!
I want to show my fourth graders this video tomorrow. I think it's a great way to start the year. I love when teachers include songs and raps in their teaching. It's a little unconventional, but so incredibly powerful.
