It's Not a Secret Anymore!

Just before Spring Break we told you that we were working on a secret project with a very special song.  Well now we can finally show you what we were up to.

For the past few months we have been working with a student from Mr. Shareski's education course at the University of Regina. Twice a week during community read Miss Greensheilds has been listening to us read through Skype.  Since our class is working with his student we were invited to join in a lipdub of the special song sang by Commander Chris Hadfield (the Canadian Astronaut in Space) and Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies.  If you haven't seen the original version please be sure to check out the "secret project" link. It's really incredible because Chris is in outer space and Ed is on Earth.

Here's the final product. Watch carefully though because you WILL recognize some of the people in this version of the song!



A very special thank you to Dean Shareski for letting us be a part of this very special project.  You can read more about this project on his blog.

*UPDATE!  Ms. Lirenman found out that Commander Hadfield WATCHED this video!  He watched something we are in! How cool is that!
