Music Monday #12: Hall of Fame by The Script...

"Hall of Fame" by The Script with

*This has got to be one of my favorite songs and videos.

*The message is powerful, meaningful, and important.

*I love how the video was put together and it always captivates my students' attention.

*This was our twelvth Monday where we featured a musical 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.  They can also write about the message of the song.  

*I have my students write between 5-10 minutes.  At the end of our writing time, I see if a few of the writers would like to share what they wrote.
