Griswold Heights Community Center Sings Their “Planet Song” – Reading Writing and Rhyming

This was a special visit, as it was an invite from Griswold Heights Community Center in Troy  in association with Phil Fusco and the Academy for Character Education at the Sage Colleges.  Enough of the formalities – let’s hear their Planet Song! 

Quick – can you name all of the planets in the solar system?  I knew you couldn’t!  Neither can I.  But these kids sure can.  Here’s a sentence that will help you ( I learned this from them!)

My Very Elegant Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas”

The first letter in each word represents the first letter of one of the planets, get it?  That’s all well and good, but how do you remember THAT?  With a song, of course.
