Over the past weekend my brother and his family were in town for a visit from Maryland! It was such a nice visit. We had lots of fun being silly and enjoying each other's company! This time around my niece, Shannon, stayed with us. Kam and Nat grew attached to her and acted as if they had suddenly gained a big sister. She's grown into quite the young lady!
Shannon and I connected in fun ways we'd never really done before...we talked about great books to read and she wrote me a list of her recommendations. We watched the movie Pitch Perfect together! I love hearing singing and music a Capella style and if you do, I highly recommend this movie-it's quirky and funny and sort of reminds me of a modern day Grease, Revenge of the Nerds sort of movie.
The main reason I'm writing about it though is because of the songs that I couldn't get out of my head after the movie was over! We tried to learn how to do "the Cup Song". Here's a video link to that if you've never seen it before: The Cup Song Audition Scene from Pitch Perfect
After watching the movie, I had to have some of the songs. I felt like the music was so fun and uplifting! I went to iTunes and bought The Cup Song, Party in the USA, Trebles Finals and The Bella's Finals. I could play these songs over and over! (and have been as I've written the slice using my iPhone tonight!) The songs make me feel like singing in the car or the shower because they are so much fun. Thanks to Shannie-Boo for sharing this music with me!
So my slice question this week is what music or soundtracks do you love? If you're back to school, how do you use music in the classroom?
