Schoharie Elementary’s “That’s My Kind Of School” – Reading, Writing and Rhyming [VIDEO][AUDIO]
Well, it think it’s safe to say we are batting a thousand when we work together at Schoharie Elementary School. I always seem to walk away with a hit song on my recording device, conceived and written by some very creative elementary students. That’s MY kind of school!!
Once again I interrupted Mrs Yager’s workflow with keyboard in hand to help create a song with her class, and she always is gracious enough to make time for me each year.
This time the 4th graders were psyched to write a parody concerning all of the subjects they are learning about in this awesome educational institution ,and I was happy to help out. The song they love from our WGNA playlist is “My Kind Of Night” by Luke Bryan (anybody ever heard of him? LOL)
The kids wrote this in less than an hour, and were so ”into it” that they even invited the class next door to join in on the chorus! We decided to go all out here and do a YouTube video. Check this out! (lyrics are at the bottom)
LYRICS TO “It’s My Kind of School”
I’ve got my book bag on my back
And I’ve got my homework and my snack
I’m ready for the school day
Schoharie I’m on my way!
I’m gonna learn science, math, and art
And if I study I’ll be smart
And before we’re through, social studies too
Reading is important so is writing and lunch time
And we go out to gym so we can have a fun time
And here on place that’s cool
It’s Schoharie School!
We’re fourth graders and our teacher’s Mrs. Yager
And for reading Mrs. Hammond and Mrs. Schaffer
And here’s one school that really rules
It’s Schoharie School
It’s Schoharie School!!!!!!!!!!! Time for RECESS!
Written by: Mrs. Yager’s awesome writers!
Thanks once again to the kids, Mrs. Yager and of course Principal Gillis for having me back. Your school is starting to feel like home to me!
