12-year-olds like the beatles.

As kids researched for a project today, I played The Beatles’ Abbey Road album, and the kids have rarely worked harder or concentrated more. A revelation!

Starting next week, it’ll be a “musical democracy,” and we’ll occasionally have work time accompanied by music that we’ve voted on. (Also, all the tables are different “countries,” so I’m totally running with this cheesy, mildly contrived democracy theme.)

Is it any surprise that they loved “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”?  (Should I be concerned that at one point Maxwell hits a teacher with a hammer?)

One kid said, “This is better than Lil Wayne.” Yes. Thank you.

Sony sucks and prevents embedded videos from playing. Still, click below to go to youtube. This song is awesome.
