Express Yourself

Song For Encouraging Creative Writing
Lauren Mayer


This song is available on Curriculum Rocks' Second Grade Rocks!


Writing is awesome, writing is great
One way you can communicate
What you're thinking, or want to do
Learn the tools and it's up to you
You can express yourself - oh yes, Express yourself!

So write a story, essay or song
Journals, letters, you can't go wrong
Using sentences, paragraphs, like we've been taught
In second grade, hey, we've learned alot
We can express ourselves - oh yes, Express yourself!

Stories need an end, a middle and a beginning
A problem and solution - keep the action spinning
Characters and setting, make up a situation
The only limit is your imagination!
(Yeah!)

Spacing and capitals get your thoughts straight
And it's more fun when you punctuate
Exclamation marks, question marks, quotation marks, please
Apostrophes and parentheses
Help you express yourself - oh yes, Express yourself!

Stories need an end, a middle and a beginning
A problem and solution - keep the action spinning
Characters and setting, make up a situation
The only limit is your imagination!
(Yeah!)

Spacing and capitals get your thoughts straight
And it's more fun when you punctuate
Exclamation marks, question marks, quotation marks, please
Apostrophes and parentheses
Help you express yourself - oh yes, Express yourself!

You can express yourself - oh yes,
Express yourself!
(Yeah!)
