I'm at an all girls middle school. With exams just completed, I was told this week I can just do pop songs with my kids. I tried Far East Movement's "Rocketeer" with a 3rd grade class and they liked the song. There are some slow and repetitive parts to the song that are easy, but there were also a few faster parts that were too hard for my kids (most are low level). I've since had a 1st grade and 2nd grade class and decided to show Bruno Mars' "Just the way you are." This video was ace. My girls really really liked it. There are a few faster parts here too, but the words aren't as difficult. Just spent more time on the faster sections. My first graders did pretty well once we got to the part of trying to sing along. My 2nd graders really loved it, and even after the 2nd go at it, they pretty much killed it. I think I'll stick with Bruno for my 3rd graders too. It may be easy for some, but I think they can understand the concept of this love song over Rocketeer.
The kids were sad at first when I said we weren't just watching a movie, but they ended up loving the song.
