Since I had to create a song, I had to come up with an idea first. Which was really hard because I didn’t know where to start. At first, I wrote a song that listed fast food restaurants and spelled out Obesity. That song was horrible, so what I did next was went home and watched the Beyonce video where the kids and her are dancing in the lunchroom. After that I started to write and an idea popped into my head.
So with that Idea, I created Get up and Move. After the classed listen to the song, some people said it was pretty corny but I felt like at least you heard the message get across. Other people told me that they thought the song was good because they understood what I was getting at and they got the message just like that.
I liked working with my group because everything flowed together. Even though we didn’t together 100% of the time, I felt as if we presented what we knew, what we learned and what we felt would grab the attention of the children’s parents.
