I regularly video tape my students for our own evaluation, motivation and sharing with families.  I maintain a Facebook page just for this purpose.  Here is a link to my current videos.  Some os these videos get posted on YouTube and some don't.

Mrs. Lukow's FB Music page video link.
What a delightfully surprising video!  
Fantastic choir full of passion!

As a follow up to Goober Peas,

we are singing/speaking this

fabulous piece in 5th grade

for this is the year they learn

of the "War Between The States"

or the more commonly called

"Civil War."

One of the wonderful things I learned from Quantum Learning was "chunking."  Our brain learns better in sections, segments, chunks.

Today, my kinders sang an awesome song from Music K8 called Humhumnuknukuapua'a!

What a HUGE word for little ones!   But they wrote their own four section segmented paper and can say the name of this cool fish from Hawaii!

We sing Goober Peas in 5th grade. They study the Civil War. I show several videos. This is a favorite. In discussion I told them Burl Ives was the voice of the Snowman on the Rudolph Red-Nosed Reindeer show. I asked if they knew Johnny Cash. One boy said, "Bob should know. He did a paper on him." Bob said, "I did a paper on Johnny Carson, not Johnny Cash." The first boy said, "Same thing."

Um...not really. :/

Jump Band Joy!

We're doing Jump Bands today! We normally do this in January because, 
you know, January starts with J and so does Jump Bands. :) But this year, 
we performed Basketballs to the Beat in January so I PROMISED to do 
Jump Bands in April! It's April folks! Woo Hoo!
