'Wake Up!' (Grades K-6) is a whole school, curriculum-aligned, narrative style song. It highlights the importance of making responsible choices and being grateful for what we have, assisting the development of a growth mindset.

The song takes students on a journey of self-discovery, incorporating the themes of empathy, kindness, mindfulness and gratitude, compassion and consideration for others - core elements of building resilience and for nurturing the human spirit.

The song helps the student to see the positives in their world, despite the challenges they might face and to understand they are able to reach out to others for support and have choices that they can make each day.

It contains materials that integrate learning across key areas of school curriculum, and makes a perfect Thanksgiving song ~ every day! :-)

Children Learn What They Sing™

Tip: Sing the chorus, only, with younger grades, allowing them to listen to the storyline in the verses. They'll join in automatically, once they've heard the song a few times.
