Flash mob as a teaching tool

Posted:

OREGON (WKOW) -- Elementary students in Oregon were surprised Tuesday with a break-out "flash mob" dance from their teachers.

Brooklyn elementary school was having an assembly and while the principal was reading a poem, the school's staff started dancing.

The principal says they are hoping the dance got students excited about learning.

"We're hoping that was kind of an inspiring event for them; that they want to learn the dance. And then we'll tie it to our expectations this week of keeping hallways clean. Each week we'll look at what should kids be working on next; playground behavior, bus behavior and so on," said principal Kerri Modjeski.

Staff members are hoping that by the end of the year the students will know all of the moves and that the whole school will be able to dance together.
