Inspirational and Fun Songs for Making an End of Year Video

There are 12 days left to our school year and I am busy with all those end of the year activities.  From cleaning and packing my classroom, finishing last minute assignments and putting on our class play things can get hectic.  One crazy thing that I add to my schedule is making a slideshow for my students.  Throughout the year I take lots of photos and it's easy for me to create a slideshow with the Macbook Pro.  I add music that I put together using Garage Band.  Then I burn a CD as an end of year gift for each student.  Then on one of our last half-days of school we sit and watch the video together.  Selecting all the photos and songs and creating the slideshow is one way I can slow down a bit and remember our time together as a community. I thought I would share a list of some of my favorite songs I have used over the years plus a few new ones I've added this year.  These songs are inspirational, fun and not just for the end of the school year. Enjoy!
