"Proud" by Heather Small
*This was our second Monday where we featured our music selection.
*Each Monday I highlight a piece of music to share with my writers.
*We begin with showing a video that goes along with the musical selection.
*The class will watch the video between 1-2 times.
*After the second viewing, the writers begin to record their thoughts in the notebooks.
*As they write, I play the music in the background (minus the video).
*My fourth graders can record their thoughts, ideas, connections, likes/dislikes, or reactions to the song.
*I have my students write between 5-10 minutes. At the end of our writing time, I see if I few of the writers would like to share what they wrote.
*Based on history, Music Monday becomes one of the most popular days of our writing week!
