So I created a simple set of task cards to practice those two skills and a few "right there" comprehension questions.
Surprisingly, NOT ONE of my students had ever heard the song!! I couldn't believe it!!! Therefore, being the teacher that I am who sings at any chance I can get, I HAD to sing the song! My students all whined and complained, but then as I sang it, they either a) really got into the rhythm of it, or b) laughed their heads off! Either way, I don't think they'll ever forget the song!
After I sang it, I sent them on their way answering questions taped up around the room on the task cards. This was a GREAT little review for just beginning our cause and effect unit.
I put the file on TPT for you to use if you desire. It's free! Click here or on the picture to take you there!
***I didn't include the lyrics in the file on TPT due to copyright laws. You can easily find them by googling "On Top of Spaghetti". I found mine here.
