...I'm a Little Bit Rock 'n' Roll

I am so excited to receive so many followers already! In just a short time, I've realized that we all have a lot in common, especially when it comes to our techniques and strategies. Just for fun, I want to see how many of you are also a fan of my favorite YouTube channel!

My students and I LOVE to sing, as I'm sure yours do too. My students and I are "a little bit rock 'n' roll," and so is HarryKindergarten. I discovered HarryKindergarten several years ago, and now I can't remember how I ever taught without him! He is a kindergarten teacher that shares FREE music videos based on content standards. I am blessed to have a SMARTBoard in my classroom, and it is one of the few things I didn't receive from DonorsChoose.org. (Although, you can request SMARTBoards and projectors through DC!) We have a blast watching and singing along with Harry's videos in my classroom!

We loved singing this song at the beginning of the year!


My students would BEG me to sing this song!


Finally, this is one of Harry's newest songs, and it brings tears to my eyes!


I love these videos, and we have so much fun watching them! I would love to know how many of you use HarryKindergarten and adore him too! But for now, I think I'll turn up the jams and enjoy this beautiful day!

With Love,
Miss J.

Thank you everyone for your comments! I can't seem to figure out how to reply to each one of you separately. :\ So for now, I'll have to do group comments. I hope you enjoy HarryKindergarten's videos!
