I use songs in my classroom to teach students as well as to motivate students. Below are some great parody songs that my students enjoy and know all the words to.
My students enjoy music and learn the lyrics to many different songs. While searching Youtube for a while, I found the song below. The lyrics are very catchy, and students eat it up. They now know their elements of literature, as well as examples of each.

I am looking forward to seeing all the other new bloggers out there. I have learned so much in the last couple of weeks and are looking forward to learning more.
I came across the pinterest website over Christmas break. I now have the pin it button on my search engine, the app on my IPhone and Ipad. I would now say that I am addicted. I have found so many ideas on this website for my classroom. I want to provide the links to boards that I am updating on a daily basis’.
I have enjoyed the linking that has been going on in teacher blog land. As I was typing my newsletters for my kiddos I thought I would love to see what other teachers newsletters look like.

While blog hoping this afternoon I came across Mrs. Bainbridge’s blog. She is sharing her lesson plans with everyone and has encouraged others to share as well. I am a check list kind of gal, so my lesson plans follow that layout. I also print my lesson plans and keep them in a three ringer binder, as well as turn them into the office each Monday. Take a look at my plans:
