Daily Reminder # 274

I watched the Oscars last night, not something I usually do. At the very end, they had a bunch of 5th graders from Staten Island sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Best part of the evening. I was thinking of sharing it tonight both because I liked it and because it was relatively warm today but damp and gloomy and rich in icy rain. Ugh. Will winter never end?  But I digress.  It's just wonderful when you see kids inspired by a teacher who clearly adores them and finding joy in themselves and in singing. So here - along with my gratitude are a few songs by the 5th graders of PS22.  The first song was written by their teacher.

I loved that! I really liked the first song the best - we could all stand to remember that we don't have to stop & that there are flowers under the snow.
