As of late, we have been blessed with a lot of media coverage. One question that starts most interviews is, “How did Common Core Rap begin?” If you’ve followed us from the beginning, you likely know the answer. For those of you that have recently discovered us, here is a quick history. I was asked to write a rap to introduce students to Edmodo, a classroom social media site that allows teachers and students to communicate, share ideas, post homework, and more in a safe, secure environment. Immediately, the song received a lot of praise from teachers and Edmodo staff. One staffer even asked to use the rap to introduce Edmodo at a conference! The students loved the Edmodo rap and the idea for Common Core Rap was born. 17 videos later, we are thrilled to know our videos are used all across the country and on several continents! Listen to how it all began

Common Core Rap was created to make learning more fun for students. We set out to make products that transcend the classroom and stay with students long after the bell rings. The greatest complements we receive are when teachers tell us that they hear their students singing our songs in line, at lunch, during centers, etc. We love to hear that students are going home and watching our videos or reading the lyrics to prepare for tests. What began as a teacher’s idea has become something real and powerful. Music evokes memories, emotions, passion, and so much more. We strive to create songs students can’t get out of their heads, because we know when test day arrives the answers will be fresh in their minds. We want to thank Ava S. for sending in this video of herself preparing for her Habitats test. This is why we do what we do!
