Gotta Keep Reading – Ocoee Middle School Unites!

Ocoee Middle School in Central Florida made this fantastic video a few years ago, but it is still SO relevant!  The took the words from a popular Black Eyed Peas song, changed them (with permission) and made this amazing video with the entire school to promote reading!

Take a few minutes to check it out. . .and before you know it, you’ll be singing THIS version of the song!

Gotta Keep Reading – Ocoee Middle School (to the familiar tune of I’ve Got a Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas)

Happy Friday!

Thanks for reading,

  1. I LOVE IT
    I’ll share in my blog (Spanish) too, thanks. It’s great, they made a great work with the song, the dance, fantastic!!
    Was it the school were your worked or something?


    • Not my school, but about an hour away from where I worked. Florida has a reading contest every year where kids make great reading videos, and I think this might have been part of the contest. Either way, our media specialist showed it to the kids like 3 years ago, and I have shown it to mine every year. It’s great because all the kids know the original song, and this one is sooo catchy!


  2. Love the video! It is such a great idea. They have definitely nailed it to interest their target audiences in a fun way. Brilliant strategy! Thank you for sharing Rebecca.



  3. My students definitely love singing this song, and your post makes me want to go in and show it this week. Thanks for bringing it back to my attention!
