Music Monday #6 (Surfin' USA)

With it being the week before spring break, I wanted to get my students in the "spring break" frame of mind.  Last Monday, I shared with my class an old classic.  Our Music Monday song was Surfin' USA by The Beach Boys

I was surprised how many of my students actually knew this song.  It was fun to play, fun to watch their faces while they listened, and extremely fun to watch them write as they listened to the music.  I think we definitely got in the spring break mood after listening to this song.   

I shared a video (included below) with the class and they enjoyed looking at all the surfing pictures while listening to the song.  One of my "jobs" for over spring break is to come up with an idea for next Monday's song when we come back after break.
