Rev Up Your Summer Reading

I found a new blog today, a woman who teaches 4th and 5th graders with hearing loss.  It must be hard to keep their attention, as any kids that age.
Confessions of an Untenured Teacher

She shared with her readers a longer version of this great remix about reading performed by the Ocoee Middle School (don’t know where they are located) based on the Black Eyed Peas song and the grand Oprah extravaganza.

The version I am sharing only gives you a taste, but it is something I think needs to be shared.

Be sure you and your kids keep reading this summer.


  1. I’ll always be so grateful that I learned to love books and didn’t have the distraction of a computer or those horrible playstation/nintendo thingies.

  2. Ocoee Middle School is in Florida, I’m friends with a woman who teaches science there. I love that video, it looks like they are having so much fun with it.

    • My son was reading at above a third grade level before he started school. The joy of reading needs to be instilled early and supported.

  4. what an inspiration. I’m working with Borders on their Summer Reading Program, get a free book when kids read 10 books of their choice (plus 2 $100 GC giveaways)
