Adele: Someone Like You: Use for Tuck Everlasting-text to text connections (what Jesse might say to Winnie when he sees her later in life)

bob dylan - forever young

I've always loved these lyrics. So I decided to make a print to put above my babies crib. These designs can be customarily made to fit any color scheme in your house.

May you build a ladder to the stars, climb on every rung, and may you stay forever young. Bob Dylan.

Hall of Fame by The Script -Noah's new favorite song - makes me think of you!

fav song-- Hall of Fame-- lyrics

I love having students think differently for "All About Me" activities, especially the older kids. This is perfect for middle school. Find a song, embed it on their website, find the lyrics, make a wordcloud, use it with an activity in Language Arts... lots of possibilities

Pink-Try "Gotta get up and try and try," "Are you just getting by?" Themes: Perseverance, following your dreams/passions, getting burned and keeping your heart open anyway

I am a rock-simon and garfunkle "I am a rock; I am an island; I've built walls, a fortress deep and mighty...I have my books and my poetry to protect me." (poetry-metaphor, personification, internal struggle; man vs self; introversion; compare with picturebook Albert)

Llenka-The Show "I'm just a little bit caught in the middle. Life is a maze and love is a riddle...just enjoy the show...the sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight" (poetry-metaphor, extended metaphor, simile; love of language Fridays; poetry workshop)

Waiting on the World to Change-John Mayer "Me and all my friends, we're all misunderstood. They say we stand for nothing and there's no way we ever could." (power of youth/generation; make a difference, change the world; waiting vs taking action) "When you trust your television, what you get is what you got" (critical literacy, who is sending the messages, etc)

Beyonce-I was Here "I was here. I lived, I loved. I did, I done, everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be...the hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave that I made a difference...I want to leave my footprints in the sands of time" (make a difference, metaphors, legacies, leave a mark, goal setting, believing in self/power)

Man in the Mirror-Michael Jackson "I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life; gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference, gonna make it right; I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to change his ways...and no message could've been any clearer-if you wantto change the world, take a look at yourself and make a change" (Making a difference, changing the world, looking inward, taking responsibility)

Status Quo-High School Musical "Stick to the status quo; If you wanna be cool, don't mess with the flow." conformity, individualism, author's intended message versus literal stated messsage (use with Stargirl, Schooled, Firegirl, etc.)

Your Guardian Angel-Red Jumpsuit Apparatus use with Holocaust study, especially Milkweed, Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Yellow Star, Number the Stars; "I will never let you fall, I'll stand up with you forever; I'll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to heaven."

Sing it for the World-My Chemical Romance "Everytime that you lose, sing if for the world; sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts; sing it for the world, sing it for the world; and raise your voice every single time they try and shut your mouth" (nonconformity, individualism, staying true to oneself)

(Imagine Dragons-It's TIme) It's time to begin, isn't it? I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit I'm just the same as I was Now don't you understand I'm never changing who I am (themes: nonconformity, staying true to self, bravery and losing confidence)
