Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Plot Lines- Putting it All in Order - Section 1: Warm Up


I love using music in my lessons when it makes sense.  This is an example of where it REALLY makes sense.  Although the video isn't as clear as I'd like, I think it shows how excited the kids are to sing the chorus.  They learn the components of the plot line easily, and don't forget it.  In our Fantasy Book Report lesson, I re-introduced the song because we were talking about plot.  They jumped right into it.  Made me smile!
