Sure! I uploaded the lyrics in Microsoft Word doc format in a zip file along with the MP3, so you can simply download the product again. Thanks for listening. --Ash

“Betty Botter”

Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "the butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter;
But a bit of better butter,
Will make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter
Better than her bitter butter;
And she put it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter,
So ‘twas better
Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

I would suggest rounding your prices to numbers such as $.99 to $1.00. I know that sounds picky but the odd prices do not encourage someone to purchase. For some reason products priced as $1.00, $1.50, $2.00 sell better. I learned this the hard way when I first started out.

Hello,

My name is Rick and I'm new to Teachers Pay Teachers. I am a History teacher in Virginia. I joined because I am thinking of trying to sell some of my History study aides and some of my songs I've written for my History class. I've got six songs. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing any advice from your experiences with Teachers Pay Teachers and whether or not this has been of any help to you financially. Thanks.

- Be specific in your product description.

Good luck! Hope to hear from you.

Sure. They're on the description in the product catalog and you can copy and paste. Or you can just copy and paste from here. See below...

"Ecosystem"

A community is made up of different populations.
A population is made up of similar individuals.

Chorus:
A community and its physical environment (repeat)
Ecosystem...

A population has a certain role
That is called a niche,
And a habitat is the home
Where the population lives.

(Chorus)

Most of our science songs are sold separately. However, we do have an album called "Musical Cells" you might want to check out if you teach cell biology: http://moourl.com/ecxii. Since you're interested, we'll get to work on another science album and let you know when it's done. (Oh, don't forget to "follow us." Otherwise, it's hard to contact you.)

Buyer re: "The Gettysburg Address" (MP3 - song with handout)
Hello, I recently downloaded your amazing Gettysburg Address song, however, I was wondering if there is any way we may download just the melody by itself, also. My daughter has to recite the Gettysburg Address and she can only do it to your song, so I thought if I can just play the melody in the background, she will be able to sing it.
Please let me know as soon as possible, she needs to do this before the end of the school year.
Thank you.

These songs are great - not corny or corky like most school CDs. Do you have these songs on a regular CD for purchase? Many of your songs relate to my 6th grade curriculum, but I don't have access to MP3 players in my building, so a CD would work best. Can I order the songs I want and pay for a CD? Thanks!

Jessica,

Thanks for the compliments. We really do respond well to flattery. So far we can't sell CD's through this site, but we can help you learn how to put the MP3's on a CD so you won't have to use MP3 players.

If you have a computer with a CD burner, you can put a lot of MP3's on a disk in just a few quick steps.

Do you have a Mac or a PC? If you have a Mac, or you don't mind installing the free iTunes software on your PC, follow the directions at http://www.wikihow.com/Burn-a-CD-Using-iTunes-Version-5 to use iTunes to burn a CD.

If you have a PC, and you want to use Windows Media Player to burn the CD, you can use the directions at http://www.wikihow.com/Copy-or-Burn-a-CD-Using-Windows-Media-Player.

We hope this will be helpful. Thank you for incorporating our music into your school day.

What excellent attention to detail! We truly appreciate your conscientious listening, and we want to offer you a free CD. You are correct. Punxsutawney Phil is actually from the small town of Punxsutawney, PA. Apparently, Philadelphia is his home away from home. Maybe that is why his name is “Phil” – short for Philadelphia. We have often noticed information on the web that refers to Punxsutawney, Philadelphia (see links below), but have come to the conclusion that this must be a common typographical error. Though Philadelphia might want to claim the little guy, he’s a small town marmot.

Based on your concern for accurate details, we have decided to rerecord the song and repost it on www.teacherspayteachers.com. Send us your information and we’ll send you a BPB CD and a free download of the new version of Punxsutawney Phil.

Thanks!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught fourteen years in a Central Alabama elementary school and have written hundreds of EduPop study songs, a few commercial jingles, a school song, and two radio show themes.

I'm also a husband and a father of two incredible little boys!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My favorite teaching tool is music, but I also draw comics and write skits.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've been named "Stellar Teacher" five times by the Space Day Foundation sponsored by NASA and Lockheed Martin. Also, I was named a 2008-2009 NAIS "Teacher of the Future".

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.S. degree from Freed-Hardeman University and a Master's degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Research suggests that music can be an invaluable tool for teaching and learning. Since its first publication in 1983, Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences has convinced educators all over the world to open their minds to affecting the "musical-rhythmic intelligence." Using music to teach specific lessons in and out of the classroom is a relatively new tool, but it is quickly growing support especially in the conceptual age. Researchers have proven that music is a powerful motivational tool that increases students' attention spans. Many believe that it increases the retention of content as well. The idea isn't new to me. I grew up watching Sesame Street, and singing Bible verses in Sunday school.
