Schoharie Elementary Rewrites Little Big Town’s Pontoon – Reading, Writing and Rhyming
Ahhhhhhh! A dream realized. I got a chance to return to a school that brought back so many amazing memories for me personally- Schoharie Elementary School.
What can I say about teacher Karen Yager and Principal MaryEllen Gillis that hasn't been mentioned before? I could go on and on about their dedication and committment to education and their community.
They love the radio station out there, and the kids have an AMAZING working knowledge of country music and song parody writing!
They wanted to take the song "Pontoon", by Little Big Town and change it to write a song about their "Classroom". Brilliant! That's half the battle - coming up with the idea.
