Gotta Keep Reading - A Music Video

A "tweet" from Joyce Valenza alerted me to this 12/11/09 music video from Ocoee Middle School (FL) on Teacher Tube. Apparently, the school hired a professional singer to write and sing lyrics related to reading and literacy to encourage kids to prepare and read for the FCAT test. The music video, "Keep Reading" includes full student participation. Music is based on song by The Black-Eyed Peas. It is awesome!

See also on Vimeo. What is also very cool is all the "response" videos by kids everywhere....posted to YouTube.

Absolutely love this. I am going to show my students and share it on Facebook. I'm hoping some students will do it with me at our annual talent show.
