Soundtrack of My Life

My 6th graders are preparing to move to JH. They have just a few days of 6th grade left.  This week we reflected on life events and how music has played a role in them.  We discussed the purpose of music in commercials, movies, ceremonies and ballgames.  Then I asked students to write about music in their lives by creating a playlist of life events and songs that go with them.  I LOVE how thoughtful and funny they were.  Here are a few samples:

The time my dog died: “My Heart Will Go On”

My 1st Cardinal’s Game: “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”

My Birthday: “Born to Be Wild”

My First Bath:  “Splish Splash”

My 1st Sleepover: “Party in the U.S.A.”

The 3rd Time I Moved: “Life is a Highway”

I Was Born: “Celebrate!”

My 1st Birthday: “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive”

3rd Grade Sleepover: “Why Can’t We Be Friends?”

My 1st Bike Wreck: “Another One Bites the Dust”

My 1st Cell Phone: “Call Me Maybe”

Mom and Dad’s Divorce: “Mockingbird”

First Day of School: “I’m Sexy and I Know It”
