Today was my 3rd official day with students. I do something new with them on the first day of school every year. This year, I'm actually really excited about - more to come on that later.
Anyway, as an attention-getter this year, I found this really fun youtube link: Minnesota Boy Choir Dum-Dum. I love it so much, and can think of so many ways to use this in my special chorus, general ed classes, and just for fun. However, I learned the song more like this:
I'm using this song with my 3rd through 5th graders right now, and they are loving it. They are also coming up with different ways to change the actions, but especially the tempo. (They absolutely love going as fast as possible). It is a great quick transition song, great attention-grabber, and I can see myself using this a lot this year.
