Remember School House Rock???

Gosh, I loved all them! Everything from "Conjunction Junction" to "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly get your Adverbs here". Remember how those silly little songs got stuck in your head and you just couldn't get them out? loved them as much as I did. I actually loved them more than the cartoons that were on. Now, how many of you can clearly remember a time when one of these little songs saved you? I can clearly remember 5th grade Social Studies. One day our teacher decided to give us a pop quiz and she took each of us out of the classroom and had us recite the preamble to the Constitution. I instantly knew I would be okay, I just remembered the song. Afterward about half of my classmates confessed they did the same thing. Those were the kids who passed that quiz!Several years ago one of my closest friends gave me the entire 4 disc music collection and it has been a treasured gift. Now that I am a home schooling mama these discs are a godsend. My kids are having so much fun listening to them and I am having a great time listening to them again too. It brings back so many memories. I just hope they will help my kids remember some of the important info they will need to know. FYI, you can also go on YouTube and watch all the videos too. Which one was your favorite? and if you have a great story about SHR, I'd love to hear it!

April, Amazon has several options. You should go check them out. But wow, the one I have is now been discontinued and it's going for a small fortune used. But I wouldn't part with it.

Yep, I have the DVD's so we get to watch the old Schoolhouse Rock too! It's so funny you mentioned this because we just watched a bunch of them about a week ago!! And my favorite is "I'm just a Bill, just an ordinary Bill . . ." :)
