Tunes Tuesday! Jack Johnson Style

Hey There!
I am a hot sticky mess here on Cape Cod and I am loving it. 
If you read yesterday's post you know I've been wanting some pool time. 
Lucky me- we are headed to a cool pool today. Yay! 
I don't like to be a brat but when you live near the beach sometimes 
you need a little break from the sand. 
I think my kids hair will have sand in it until at least November. 
In my car I am currently toting around about 1/4 of the Cape beaches. 

Today I am linking up for something fun and new Nick is doing over at his 
super cool blog Sweet Rhyme and Pure Reason
He has started "Tunes Tuesday" where teachers can link up current (or not so current) songs and use those songs to teach grammar. Genius I tell you, genius!

I chose "We're Going To Be Friends" by The White Stripes.
I actually really love the Jack Johnson version.
My son listened to that cd going to sleep for ages and still requests it in the car and such.
It's a great album for kids and adults!

This song has some great rhymes in it that you and your students can pick out and highlight.
Don't highlighters make everything better?
I have created a freebie of the song for you to print off for your students.
Click here to check it out.

After you work together finding all the rhymes in this song you can share this ADORABLE video of the song with your class. You may even do the video before for a little background building. 

Ok! If you need me I'll be poolside.
Imagine me with a frosty umbrella drink.
But then know I'm really trying to keep 3 little ones safe- very relaxing!
