Good morning 5th grade! Today we will write a song together as a class. To do this, I want each of you to write two or three complete sentences describing the things that make you happy.
Be sure to express yourself in your sentences and to show your emotions. Remember that you will be sharing them with the class.
Okay class, who would like to share first?
Lucy, please remember to stay in your seat and raise your hand if you want to participate, just like your classmates.
Great sentences! Now let's combine them and make a song!
*All sing their class song*
