M is for "Music"

Promoting Literacy Through Music

Did you know that Language in music and language in print have many similarities, such as the use of abstract symbols? That both oral language and written language can be obtained in the same manner? Emergent readers will attempt to "read" along in a shared reading of a familiar text, just as they will join in a sing along to a familiar song.

Explore the sidebar areas for songs and materials. Some of it is sales, but there are some materials available on the website.

  • Laura,

    I was just wondering: Are you going to develop that page as a separate blog?

  • This site is very cool. Music really enhances learning. I learned a song in elementary school to remember the continents. I still find myself singing it now to recall them.

  • This is such a nice website. I remember in my class I am observing that the Reading teacher came in with songs to help the kids remeber the target for the day. Very Helpful!

  • In high school(in the Phil.), one of the requirements in my Spanish class was to memorize and recite a 14-stanza Spanish Poem entitled "MI Ultimo Adios". If not for the MUSIC, I would have not done it easily.
