5th Grade Variety Show Act - Performance April 17th at 6pm

5th graders have been working in class on their 5th Grade Act, which consists of a shortened versions of four songs with fun lyrics to go with graduation and loosely based on this year's school theme of Under the Sea.

Here are the slides I've been using in class to practice - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1B0oh1wE_6ACluO0op4K9bLi39K3S0a8jSkrmIAss3PE (links to music are included on the first slide of each song - just click and download on your device) 

Here is the current full clip with all songs put together - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BDAhjveFfCrrpNBGIYqnEY_TMR8RkqMH (I am working on a higher key for Margaritaville and we may extend Old Town Road for a dance break, I will update once those changes are made!)

We are flexible on lyrics and artistic decisions such as dance moves. If you have an idea for a change/addition, please let me know! It'd be better if you come up with an alternative as opposed to me, I know you all have great ideas! I will consider each suggestion as long as it is thoughtful and you approach me in a respectful way. And please note that any changes might take a while to reflect in the slideshow. Thanks for your understanding!
