To make studying fun, sometimes all it takes is the right teacher, or in this case, the right beat.
One sixth grade teacher came up with a fun way to teach students the vocabulary words and themes they will see on their end of the year tests.
"We used the song 'Teach Me How To Dougie' and rewrote the lyrics so it would encompass the word wall words and those concepts that are most important for them on the EOG testing," explained Barker. "I wanted them to remember it more than just for a Friday test, and it had to be something that would stick with them a long time. So putting it to the song, they can recall it all the time."
While standing on chairs, dancing, and singing the new version of the song, the students seem to approve of Ms. Barker's methods.
