Abraham Lincoln was a wise man. He chose his words carefully and spoke well. "Whatever you are, be a good one," is a perfect example of a powerful, meaningful Abe Lincoln quote. There are countless dozens of such quotes attributed to him. This song addresses the importance of words and, for my students, became an important lesson in assessing the value and impact of the words each of us use throughout the course of an ordinary day. Do my words bring blessing or do they bring hurt?
This is the sing along mp4 file for "Wise Words," to be used on a smartboard, classroom computer, or even an iphone.
