Phys Ed:  We exercised to:

Typing, we banged on standard Royal Typewriters to:

If I still typed that way I'd just be posting last week's posts.

Also in Phys Ed we learned 4 beat dancing to:

In Eglish we tore apart and analyzed the lines to:  (There's a name for what we did, and I forget it, but never the song)

Metaphors, Similes, things like that.
 
Did any of you other Roadfooders out there learn by song?

    I learned to swish my bushy tail to Grey Squirrel. 
     
    Grey squirrel, Grey squirrel!
    Swish your bushy tail!
     
    Put an nut between your toes.
    Wrinkle up your little nose!
    Grey squirrel, Grey squirrel!
    Swish your bushy tail!

      I learned cursive writing with Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. Not the Suite, but the full symphony. College was a series of Mozart, Rachmaninoff, and Bach, depending on the subject. But other than our student teacher with Nutcracker, none of it was teacher-driven...apparently learning by music outside of music class was not a thing here.

            In grade school it was the wrath of the Sisters of the Holy Cross that motivated me, in High School it was the fists of the Christian Brothers, in College, it was my Father's wrath that was a great motivation  to learn...songs wern't in the mix, sorry Mar!

                  Of course. Who wouldn't? We're talking squirrels here.

                    I learned as much on Saturday mornings listening to Schoolhouse Rock as I did in school. I gave a copy of the CD to my sister-in-law a few years ago when she was homeschooling my niece and nephew.

                        The only school related song I remember is singing "School's Out" by Alice Cooper on the last day of elementary and middle school. Usually just the "no more pencils, no more books" part, as we ran screaming out of the building.

                          Number of days in each month...

                          Trenta giorni ha novembre
                          con aprile giugno e settembre
                          di ventotto ce n'รจ uno
                          tutti gli altri ne hanno trentuno.

                          It sings like a song.
