The Respect Song is an original song that was created about 2 years ago. I was playing around on my acoustic guitar after teaching one day, using the same four chords that I always use, and I stumbled across a really catchy melody and chorus. After that, the verse lyrics came pretty easy when thinking about how I want my classroom to function. I took my music recording device into school the next day, taught my students the lyrics, and recorded my 3rd grade class singing along with me.
If you can create a classroom environment with 3 general objectives, your students will be successful and you as the teacher will be stress free. The Respect Song will teach students these three objectives in a fun way that they will remember and that they will be singing over and over again.
- Respect Yourself
- Respect Others
- Respect The School
