Music Monday (Looking to 2014)...

"If We Hold On Together" from Land Before Time
*We didn't have school today so no Music Monday with my students.
*I decided to post a few songs that give me motivation for the new year 2014!

"Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield
*I love the message in this song about the possibility of what life can be for each person.  
*The words "outside the lines" are always pointed out to my students.

"The Living Proof" by Mary J. Blige from The Help
*The words in the song always get to me.
*I point out how when we support each other we can do and overcome anything.

  1. Do you always show a YouTube video when you share the songs? or do you just play the song? Do you ever then use the words to 'closely read' the true meaning of the song? Just wandering what has worked for you. I'd like to try and share more music in my class. I currently have a beautiful piano CD that I play when the kids first walk in every day, it plays for about 20 minutes, settles them in, gets the routine going for the day... they always remind me if I forget to put it on... we also play it during some individual writing time.... Thanks for your wonderful and inspiring blog! Liz
