"Proud" by Heather Small
*Today brought our second selection for Music Monday.
*This is one of my most favorite songs both for my students and myself.
*I have used it for years and to me it just gets better and better.
*Today we watched the video and had a quick discussion about the content of the "story."
*My writers then spent about 5 minutes recording their thoughts in their writer's notebooks.
*While writing we wrote and listened to the song again (without the video showing).
*At the end we had a few of the writers share what they had written.
