What poems (lyrics of songs?) are on your classroom walls? What words are priming the minds of people who enter your school? Here are some of my favorites
I want you to be brave
I use converters like to
download mp3 files (converted from Youtube videos)
and then those mp3 files are shared with students

To avoid having the lyrics found in a search (the copyright holders tend to want to decide where the words are displayed), I've made screen shots of the lyrics that I have in my classroom.  
The choices appear at the end of this post.

I find that I am a better teacher, more involved, more inspired, more likely to arrive at work whistling when I can see the words on the wall.

You're the twinkle in my eye
Take me across the sky


Silver moons and paper dreams
Faded maps and flying things
You're my favorite one-man show
a million different ways to go...  
will you fly me away, Take me away with you... 

Annie Little has created some cute "ditties" that have me dancing across the room.

I also like this verse from The Lion King

They live in you
They live in me
They're watching over 
Everything we see

In every planet
In every star
In your reflection
They live in us...
