A Monsters Morning

This morning, the students in my first class of the day were a little "grumpy" and "dragging." One of my students said something to the effect of, "hey why can't you guys be happy" which prompted my mind to think of the band REM performing "Furry Happy Monsters" on Sesame Street. So I jumped on YouTube and brought up a video of REM performing on Sesame Street and played it for my class. Some of them liked it and some were indifferent, but the end result was that the 3 minute video put enough kids in a better mood to make the class more enjoyable for everyone. The video is embedded below.
