Back to School Whip and Nae Nae: PBIS Song

       As we were heading back to school this year, we all couldn't escape the viral song that is "Watch Me" AKA the Whip and Nae Nae. With a title like that, I figured it was a perfect song to make into a PBIS song to encourage good behavior and remind students of the expectations at the beginning of the year.
     With this in mind, I went to work rewriting the words for a staff song and dance. I had a great time brainstorming the words, and then having my brother come over to record our version. (This was a whole family project with my brother, his girlfriend, my husband, and myself all on the track- many laughs throughout the recording night.)
       When school started, we got the staff together to teach them the dance moves and then presented to the students at our first Golden Awards assembly. The video is below, although the quality isn't a great. (I guess that's what you get from a 6th grader...) The students loved seeing their teachers make a fool of themselves and left school singing and dancing that day.

     After posting this video to my Instagram account, I got many requests for the words and a clearer track of the song. Although the song was written to our school specifically, it's pretty easy to still use the song and just skip through that part. Here are the words and the soundtrack:

   Enjoy! Happy Dancing!
