Top this, Denver kids: Seattle first-graders make video for Seahawks

[do action="custom_iframe" url="http://player.vimeo.com/video/85052374" " width="630" height="354" scrolling=""/]First-grade teacher Crystalyn Burke’s students kicked their 12th Kid spirit into high gear with a Super Bowl video they made last week, set to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”

In the video, made with music teacher Melyssa Stone, kids race onto the playground, waving the “Super Bound” front page of The Seattle Times. They show their love for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch by tossing his favorite Skittles candies into the air, which then rain down on a map of Manhattan. (Sorry, East Rutherford, N.J.)

The students, who are in the Accelerated Progress Program at Lincoln, tracked the Seahawks games all season and talked about them on Mondays as part of an emotional and social learning program, according to Seattle Public Schools.

They’ll have plenty of feelings to sort out next Monday after Sunday’s big game.
