soulfulremixed: Steve Biko was the founder of the Black Consciousness Movement in South Africa. In 1968 he cofounded the all-black South African Students’ Organisation. The organisation’s message spread from campuses to the general community, and in 1972 Biko helped found the Black People’s Convention. He was arrested many times for his anti-apartheid work and in 1977, died from injuries while in police custody. Joan Baez ~ Biko https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hn1QS1p94Oo

This game is good for students to recognize letters & sounds in a fun way. This game is called Zap. The students take turns saying the letter name/sound on the stick they pull. If they get it right, they get to keep it, but if it's wrong they have to put it back. If they get a Zap! they have to put all their sticks back.
Come little leaves - George Cooper This was probably the first sing I ever learned. My Grandmother sang this song to me and told me she learned it in school when she was little (and she was born in 1893). Though I never heard anyone else sing it, I loved it and taught it to my kids and grandkids. I hope they pass it on, too.
