The Bethlehem Children’s School Raps – Reading, Writing and Rhyming [AUDIO][VIDEO]

On Wednesday, I visited The Bethlehem Children's School and spent some time writing and recording a song with the elementary and middle school kids.  One of the unique things about this school is the multi-age classrooms.   Kids in grades 1 through 5 are grouped together in the Elementary class, and grades 6 through 8 are grouped together in the Middle School class.  I didn't work with the younger kids, but the school also has a pre-k program.  Take a listen (there's also a video included)
