Music Monday #11...

"One Day" by Matisyahu

*Mondays are one of my favorite days of our writing workshop.
*Today's song/video is one that truly moves me each time I listen/watch it.
*While sharing the video with my class today, I could tell they were touched by it also.
*After viewing the video, the writers spent five minutes writing in their notebooks.
*Several students shared their writing with the class.  I was impressed with the content.
*It is rewarding to bring music with a message to my students each Monday!
