The Plant Song
Another one of our special projects over the past 2 months has been writing songs to familiar tunes. We were inspired by Mrs. McKenzie’s B4 Class when they posted songs to help them with their Daily 5 program. Check for Understanding, The Cross-Checking Song, and Back Up and Re-Read It. Click on each title to hear their songs.
Our goal is to put lessons we are learning in class to music. Many of us found out that music can help us remember important words or ideas. The second grade Techie Kids learned about the parts of plants and how they grow. We wrote the words that were most important and set them to music. We hope you enjoy listening and learning with us!
Here are the lyrics we sang:
Have you ever written a song?
Can you share a song with us that has helped you remember something you learned in school?
