Kids in the 70's and 80's had "Schoolhouse Rock" - and many of us can still sing along to the animated lessons decades later. Music makes a mental connection with almost everyone.
Third grade teacher Faith McPeek recognized this. That's why she took one of the biggest hits of 2023 - Morgan Wallen's "Last Night" - and changed the lyrics up to get her lessons across. The kids were probably at least somewhat familiar with the cross-genre smash, so changing the lyrics to teach the kids their multiples of nine was a no-brainer.
"Last night, we learned to count by nine..." the song stars as the kids sing their way through all the multiples of nine, wrapping up with the teacher herself giving them a big "Woohoo" at the end. Check out the video here.
