This week I've included some of your suggestions in "When Teachers Get Up in the Morning 2.0", and then I tell my favorite Ms. Jillian's wacky music history story of ALL TIME. Every year I look forward to sharing the beautiful story of a boy named Benny Benson, and how we got our Alaska Flag. At the end of this video I lead us all in the Alaska Flag Song with sign-language, enjoy!
