Pixar Short Film: For the Birds (This one is great for the beginning of the year, especially to infer important ideas about friendships, tolerance, bullying, and more. Great "moral to the story.")

For The Birds by Pixar - YouTube. Great for teaching inferencing. Very funny! My students loved this. :)

Teacher has created long list of cartoon Pixar (and other) shorts to be used to teach reading strategies. She also has graphic organizers to go with them.

"Don't Laugh at Me" - a beautiful, teachable moment about bullying and accepting the differences of others.

We don't know what the Minions are actually "saying" but we understand what is going on. Distance Contest (Ending of "Despicable Me") - context clues and inferences YouTube

Teach kids about friendship and bullies with the book Stick and Stone. Your students will love this back to school read-aloud.

showing musical opposites-- Sesame Street - Ernie and Bert sing "Loud and Soft"- would work great for K-1. Also has "long" and "short" and they sing high and low and on different vowels.

BEST TEST PREP VIDEO EVER! There needs to be more educators like these women!!!! This music video (based on Beyonce's "All the Single Ladies") was created by teachers at Harman School in the Oakwood City School District in Dayton, Ohio as a tool to help motivate students each morning during Ohio Achievement Test week. It was quite a hit!
