Lin-Manuel Miranda, Big Sean & More Drop 'Read It' Remix With Students For 'Ellen': Watch

As important as school is, sometimes it can be a little boring. But Michael Bonner, a North Carolina teacher who creates viral educational videos with his second-grade students, knows how to make it fun. Mr. Bonner returned to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to premiere the "Read It" remix featuring his students and some very familiar rapper faces.

Set to the instrumental of O.T. Genasis' "Push It" single, the kids rap about the joys of reading alongside Big SeanLin-Manuel MirandaIce CubeMigosTy Dolla $ign and Ellen herself. The best part about the video is seeing Sean Don go riding on a scooter and the second-graders showing off their on-point dance moves with Twitch.

Bonner first appeared on Ellen last month, where the host donated $25,000 to the South Greenville elementary school and created a GoFundMe page that has since earned over $80,000. Walmart is also donating another $20,000 to the school. See the teacher discuss how the funds have helped his students below:
