From Plank Road Publishingby David Ellsworth and Anne Ellsworth
One of the many important things teachers do is give students hope and encouragement, to tell them they can do it, they are capable, and that they can choose their behavior. The song "Hope 2" aims to help kids with that. It encourages positive self talk that turns inward as well as outward.
Besides bringing a message of hope, this song offers an opportunity for movement and dance, given its cool synthesized groove. Whether you use it in a performance or just in the classroom, invite students to create their own movements. And be sure to acknowledge their contributions in a positive, hopeful way.
