The kids LOVE this song. In fact, every year that I've used this song the kids love it. It's a keeper.
My classes quickly realize how much I love songs, music, and movement and this year's class is no different. The big difference this year, however, is that this class will just spontaneously break out into song all on their own.
I love it!
It cracks me up!
For example, I'll walk by someone and remind them to write in complete sentences and before you can say "complete what?" the class is singing the sentence song.
How can you not love that?
I'm known for spontaneously breaking into song but I don't recall a class doing it like this.
In fact, a few years ago, the daughter of a fellow teacher that I had in my class once told her mom, "Mrs. Schaff will just start singing out of the blue and not even be embarrassed!"
When the mom told me I laughed so hard. Then I asked, "Should I be embarrassed?"
Nah, these are little kids. What do they care? We all spend to much of our lives being self-conscious, embarrassed, and/or worrying about what other people think.
So if the kids that leave my room remember nothing else, maybe they'll remember to take a chance . . . because you can succeed if you don't try!
