Sing and Dance and Celebrate You!
Play this upbeat, self-esteem-boosting song to give your students a brain break inspired by the Book of the Week, Fox the Tiger by Corey R. Tabor. In the music video, Book Boy Allister is a fox who wishes he was a tiger, and Book Boys Max and Elliott help show him—and all kid readers—that he should embrace who he really is!
Brain breaks provide an excellent opportunity to help students recharge and refocus between lessons, or after lunch or recess. Try playing this kid-friendly video in your class to help spark a love of reading.
1. Read aloud Fox the Tiger
2. Share the Book Boys’ music video and encourage your students to think about why they are happy being who they are
3. Afterward, have a class dialogue about a time your students wished they could be someone else
If you’re able, please share why your students are happy to be themselves on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
Allister, Elliott, and Max are three friends who work at Scholastic Book Clubs and love books—and they want to share the joy of reading with your students! New this school year: every week, you can watch the Book Boys performing a brand-new fun, educational, and engaging song and Brain Break activity to get students excited about the Book of the Week. Play the Book Boys videos in your classroom (or at home) to help your students connect to the story and explore the exciting world of reading.
