Music Monday #3 (Rainbow Connection)

Each Monday I share a song with my class.  That is our writing focus during our writer's notebook time. 
For more details, please see the blog entry  from (2/4/13).
We had missed the last two Mondays, so we were excited to get back to our Music Monday.  The 4th graders were excited to see what today's selection was going to be.  I picked an old classic.  Today we listened to Rainbow Connection from The Muppets.  This song brought me back to my childhood and I was excited to share it with my class. 
The class responded well to the song.  We watched the video version first.  While they wrote in their notebooks, we listened to the song again.  After we listened to the song that second time, several students asked if we could listen to it again.  I took that as a sign that they were enjoying the song

I just love this song and think the message is powerful, sweet, and heart-warming.  Our Monday writing has become one of our weekly favorite activities that we participate in. 

I've included the video below the list of our Music Monday selections...
