This will be the first year I have not been working in a school of my own and helping with the annual year-end slideshow. Everyone looks forward to it and sharing pictures from all the important events of the year is a great way to remind everyone about all the terrific things that happen at a school over the course of the 10 months that we are in session.
Even though I’ll miss being a part of the year-end school/student festivities, I have still found myself listening for great slideshow soundtrack candidates over the course of the school year. Old habits die hard! I always try to pick songs that are current and that students will sing along to. There’s nothing better than hearing all those young voices belting out the tunes on the last day!!
This year I have picked a selection of 6 songs that total approximately 23 minutes in length. Check out the playlist – you can listen to it on the Grooveshark site – don’t forget to press “play all” near the top of the list. Please note that if you decide to use the “Scream and Shout” song by Will.i.am and Britney Spears, that it will be important to choose the “clean” version of the song when you are downloading it from your favourite music site!
