You’re probably familiar with Oprah Winfrey’s “Kick-Off” Flash Mob Dance with 21,000 people dancing to the Black Eyed Peas song “Tonight’s Going to Be a Good Night.” You can see that video here.
Well, a middle school in Florida has done a delightful version of that mob dance — only this time they’ve changed the lyrics to reflect “Gotta’ Keep Reading.” If you haven’t seen it already, it’s not-to-be-missed.
You can read the story of the video (and Oprah’s reaction to it), as well as see the YouTube version here.

thanks for bringing this to my attention. Great video.
We have another student made version of this song – on EFL Classroom. The teacher had her students draw pictures to contextualize the words/meaning. Easily my fav. this year…..
I love them both!
Whether they enjoy reading or not, the video looked great fun to make.
Talented lyrics writers too.
Thanks for the links, again.
Love this video . It is also on Schooltube. Hopefully that is not blocked at your school.
