I'm a big fan of using parody in the classroom. I always have been! Stick around for today's link up with my girls over at Focused on Fifth to see how I use it at Christmas time!
About a year ago I legitimately used the song Amish Paradise to teach my students something. I can't for the life of me remember what that something was - but that is beside the point! The great thing about that song (and all the rest of the songs Weird Al Yankovich sings) is that they are a perfect example of parody. Totally inappropriate to use with children!! But parody none the less.
