    I particularly liked the idea of writing a letter to Tim and Moby before the movie telling them what we want to learn. This is more engaging for the students and gives them a purpose for watching the videos. I teach kindergarten and in the beginning of the year this activity could be written by the teacher, then it could become a shared writing activity. It could then move into a small group guided writing activity and eventually could be done as an individual writing activity. I am also eager to incorporate the ideas in the write about it section.
