    I make videos of all of our community-based instruction trips and field trips. We are going to a place next week that is like a huge moon bounce center (?)

    I am looking for suggestions that would go with that theme. Any ideas?

    Sugarcult - Bouncing off the walls again (it's good, but the lyrics are a little iffy for a public school autism class)

    A-Teens - Bouncing off the ceiling (upside down) - also good, but same situation as sugarcult song.

    Any other ideas????

    (these get sent to the parents, administrators, etc.)

    All of my songs go with the videos and they're so funny. I just did a video of us at Chilis with the babyback ribs song in the background.

    Any ideas?

    Just found an Aaron Carter (haha) song called "Bounce" - seems appropriate because he's like 13 when he sang this.

    What do you think?

    Wow --- great idea -- we go on community outing three to four times a week.

    Do you take a video? Is this a series of pictures showing the outing?

    I would like to know!

    Three of my students live in a group home and this would be good thing to send to parents --

    what program do you use and how long does it take?????????

    I am so excited!

    I use a video camera and record the different parts of the trip. Then I will use Final Cut Pro on my computer to edit the footage and add music to it.

    I burn a DVD at the end of each semester to give to the parents. I also email the clips to the parents throughout the semester.

    This is a great way to continue to get funding, also. I give the videos to the admin, board of ed, and everyone is thrilled with what goes on in my classroom.

    I know that I do good things, but I think it's mostly that I'm sharing what I'm doing. I honestly could video tape them playing in dirt and add music to it and send it out and I'd be congratulated. :)
    :whistle:

    It's great for the kids though, because they can relive the experiences. We point out what they did right and areas we can improve, etc. Just a neat way to remember the skills and have a tangible way to show skills to parents.

    There was a song that FloRida and Nelly Furtado did called Jump. Make sure to get the edited version that was on the soundtrack of some animated movie. It's got a really good beat, and the kids may know it from the movie.
