Who am I? What am I about? These are questions we never stop asking about ourselves. Today our kids ask these amidst a barrage of messages from advertisers of every shape and kind. There is no longer any attempt to cloak the formula in subtlety. Feed the ego, conform, consume. It's that clear-cut. But will I, or should I really allow myself to be defined by the clothes I wear, TV programming, my hairstyle, the car I drive, or even what I eat and drink? Or, conversely, is the axiom true that says we find ourselves by reaching out to others?
Character songs are naturals for discussion opportunities (not to mention "Character Counts" activities). You may choose to delve into deep thoughts with your class about the message of the song... or... you may just want to sing the song for the fun of it. (from Music K-8, Vol. 21, No. 4)
