Tunes Tuesday, Teaching Grammar through Music Linky!

I have waited a good week to link up with Nick from Sweet Rhyme & Pure Reason with his Tunes Tuesday. Thank you Nick for this wonderful link up. I love that I found him on Instagram along with a bunch of other great blogs. His blog, teaching, and creativity is amazing. There is something about male teachers, that just makes them extra awesome (I should know, I married one)! ;) 

Anyways,  after being on blogger since January, I've made a ton of blog friends, but by being on Instagram, I cannot believe on how many blogs, teachers, and linky parties I've been missing out on. If you know me, you know I love to link up with friends to share ideas. I also love to host linky parties with other blogs. Be prepared for an awesome linky coming Saturday! You'll need some school supplies, a picture, and a blog post... ;)

I have chosen the song  "Firework" by Katy Perry to link up with Tunes Tuesday today. If you haven't heard this song, which I'm sure you have by now, it's great and my 4th graders always love it.  Not only are they familiar with it, but they love Katy Perry too. It is usually stuck in everyone head, by the time we leave school. We practiced finding similes, metaphors, personification, and onomatopoeia using this song. I've created a freebie so you can try it out too!  Head over to Sweet Rhyme & Pure Reason to see all the wonderful link ups and get all the free songs to make grammar more fun in your classroom this year! Let me know what you think! :)

I am co-hosting a fun school supplies linky starting Saturday so be sure to check back. I am off to Michael's today to grab some supplies for a craft that I've been meaning to make! Stay tuned for pictures! It involves zebra print, mustaches, hot pink, and lime green! Wohoo! :)
