Michael Bonner is a 2nd grade teacher at South Greenville Elementary school in Greenville, North Carolina. Mr. Bonner caught nationwide attention for implementing music and dance into his teaching regimen as an easy and more comfortable way for the kids to learn, recording a song and video called “Read It.” The successful method caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who brought Mr. Bonner onto her show back in January to spotlight him and his students.
This week, Mr. Bonner returned with his 2nd grade class to The Ellen Show where they debuted a special remix version of their original song “Run It.” On the educational song, Ellen taps Big Sean, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ice Cube, Migos & Ty Dolla $ign to join in on the track. Taking it a step further, Big Sean surprised the kids on set of their “Run It” music video and filmed the visual together.
Watch the great moment below.
