Teacher’s Awesome Routine Gets Students Ready to Learn

An elementary teacher in Tennessee, Bethany Humphrey has turned her classroom into a place where students don’t just sit at their desks and listen to the teacher lecture. They get up on their feet, sing at the top of their lungs, and dance like no one’s watching, to her amazing musical routines. She takes popular songs and changes the lyrics to fit her classroom activities.

Check her out with her class, doing their morning “Getting Ready to Learn” routine:

The remix was so popular, it was featured on several news stations, and used by other teachers. For example, Heather Finch, a second grade teacher at St. John Catholic school, motivates her class in the same style!

Y’all @heatherfinch1’s class has it going on! Love watching these kiddos get down to our morning song! #choose901

But Mrs. Humphrey doesn’t stop with just the morning motivation. She creates other songs and dances for her Math lessons…

And her reading lessons…

Bringing back this song from last year. ✍ #mainidea #somanysongs #room209istoolegit (lyrics on blog – teachingandsofourth.blogspot.com)
