Do YOU Have a Theme Song????

I do! At the beginning of every school year and for open house, I present a power point that contains student expectations for the year. My THEME song is Thomas Dolby's 'She Blinded Me With Science'. Of course I don't use the video or the lyric version...just the midi file which can be found among thousands at MIDIDATABASE.COM which is completely free to use by the way. If you don't have a theme song, find one. It will truly set the tone for your year....and will always be that reminder to your students when they hear the tune again in the future! 

I'm including a pdf version of my BEGINNING OF THE YEAR POWER POINT. Please feel free to use it as inspiration to create your own. The fonts may not show up properly, but you will get the idea! 

Here's the video to She Blinded Me With Science. After all, it is SCIENCE DIVA CERTIFIED!


  1. I loved your powerpoint!!! I made one a couple of years back when I taught high school but not when I taught elementary. Do you show this before the first day (meet the teacher night) or just on the first day to your classes?

    Again thanks for sharing!!!

  2. I show this on the first day to the students. We don't have a meet the teacher night [which I would LOVE by the way!] so I tweak it for Open House....and give the parents a paper copy. I also post it on my class website. Last year I uploaded it to school tube and it played as a video. THAT was quite awesome!!!
