Kido’z (found here: is a safe way for kids to surf the net, only appropriate videos and websites come through! I was really impressed with it, and I thought parents might be as well!

Kiddos- let me know if you find something really awesome we should post about!

Fun TAKS Song

As an attempt to get ourselves all pumped up for the TAKS we’ve been singing fun songs, “Camp Songs” in preparation for the Writing TAKS (March 1- AH!).

One such song is to the tune of the Miley Cyrus song, “Party in the USA.” Mrs. Clark found this video on Teacher Tube to play in the background while we sing. Now, the words are still there, but this video has a very animated young man signing the words. The kids were pretty into it, and I thought it would be great to share with the parents! So, SING YOUR HEARTS OUT!!

I hopped off the bus at Jan Schiff with a dream and my brain was filled
Welcome to the land of state testing, whoa am I gonna do well?
Jumped in the seat, here I am for the first time
Look to my right, and I see the “You’ll do great!” sign

This is all so crazy, everybody seems so ready
My tummy’s turnin’ and I’m feelin’ kinda test-sick
Too much pressure and I’m nervous
That’s when the 4th grade came out and cheered me on

And I knew it’d be okay
And I knew it’d be okay
And I knew it’d be okay

So I put my hands up, I’m takin’ this test
The butterflies fly away
I’m noddin’ my head like “Yeah!”
Rockin’ this test like “Yeah!”

Got my hands up, I’m takin’ this test
And now I’m gonna be okay
Yeah! I’ll rock the T A K S  ! !
Yeah! I’ll rock the T A K S  !!! (You have to spell out TAKS for it to make sense)
