PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Every year for Earth Day my favorite activity is to break apart the words to the Ray Charles song- What a Wonderful World. Each kiddo illustrates 1 part of the lyrics. I then make a video by playing the actual song in the background and when their part comes up, they hold up their illustration! The kids LOVE watching this video. I also bind all the pages to make a class book for all of them to look through and give this away at the end of the year! It just melts my heart!

The template is adjusted for 22 students!

I know you updated this to "Sung by Ray Charles", and in wanting to coordinate I searched for the Ray Charles version but can't find it. I love the idea, but will have to edit it to go with the Louis Armstrong version.

This is a super cute idea. I absolutely love it and would like to use it in my classroom this year, but there's only one little problem. "What a Wonderful World" is by Louis Armstrong. =( If you can alter the artist name that would be great! Thanks!

Thanks! I will cover the Ray Charles name on your cover! My students performed the same song. But it was the version by the Hawaiian singer Israel " IZ" Kamakawiwo` ole, so this was perfect!

FYI: Ray Charles never sang Wonderful World. Every recording you can find attributing the song to him is actually Louis Armstrong singing. If you can find a recording of Ray Charles singing this song, please let me know. You have a very cute idea but the credits are wrong.

Hi, Kelly! I love this idea, but this is not a Ray Charles song. It was written by Bob Thiele and the most popular recording of it is by Louie Armstrong. Just wanted to let you know. You may want to edit it. I'm planning to edit it and use it for our preschool graduation DVD. Thanks!
On  April 13, 2012Kelly Morgan answered:
Oh my goodness, I guess I just love the Ray Charles version! I will edit it when I get home to say, Sung by Mr. Ray Charles! Thank-you!!
