Ohhh... it's CATCHY! Original Pinner said: "This morning I walked into a fifth grade classroom and they were singing the song "What I Am" by Will.i.Am. And Yes, it's a song he sang on Sesame Street. But these fifth graders were LOVING it. Their teacher told me this was their new theme song. Let me tell you....all the kids were standing up and singing this song LOUD and with hand movements. It was so awesome because I could see how much they BELIEVED the words to this song.".
Teaching Theme: Anchor Chart- I love the idea of using anchor charts! This one in particular seems to be really helpful. Students always have a hard time trying to figure out the theme of what they are reading, especially when you are first introducing how to do that! I think that this activity would make it a little bit easier for them to do on their own.
