Rock on!

Everyone should be a Rock Star! At least for 5 minutes.

O.K. so this picture doesn't much look like I'm rockin' out but 10 minutes later I sure felt like a rock star!

SC was my partner in crime for this school visit to JM Elementary. SC is a Librarian and I'm a library assistant at our local Public Library. We were admiring our lovely set up for the 1-3 grade assembly (that's when SC took the pic of me hamming for the cameraphone) when the classes started to arrive. We took a look at eachother and we commented that they looked a little big for 3rd graders. SC went to the teacher and asked what grade they were -- oops we had the 5th graders first so we scrambled to change our set up for the 4-6 grade group. The teachers did a fantastic job squeezing in 80+ kids into the tiny cafeteria but then had a difficult time getting them to settle down. You couldn't hear the teachers and even SC couldn't be heard using the mic and their PA system. I had an idea and I wasn't sure if it would work since they are all WAYYYY to young to know this song but. . .

it didn't take long for the whole group to get get the rhythm.
STOMP STOMP CLAP - STOMP STOMP CLAP- WE WILL, WE WILL ROCK YOU! the chant started with some boys in the back, I joined in & so did many others
WE WILL, WE WILL, ROCK YOU! STOMP STOMP CLAP - I put my fist in the air and yelled HELLO JM SCHOOL!

That was sooooo amazing to be there!

The rest of the assembly was, in my opinion, way cool. Hopefully the students felt the same way.

Allthough I am not sure that " Paradise by the Dashboard Light" is appropriate for gradeschoolers! LOL
