Writing a Christmas song with 20 5th Graders

I had three of my classes write original Christmas songs for their 2012 Christmas production, two sections of 5th grade and my 8th grade. Honestly, looking back I am not totally sure how I got from point A to point B. We started brainstorming titles, then music, then we split into groups of dancers, singers, rappers, artists, musicians and through the craziness we had some original material music come out. I am going to share a few videos of them with you.

This is 5th Grade A performing  “Don’t get on that naughty list”

Favorite opening line in the rap.

“Don’t get on the naughty list while Christmas is coming, don’t wake up while the rain deers are running, cause openin’ presents is a mystery
