Age Range: 3-9 (Grades PreK-4, with parental supervision)
This website offers a variety of free songs that teach language arts.
The songs include:
- The Alphabet
- Short & Long Vowel Sounds
- Consonant Digraphs
- Learn To Spell Songs
It also offers:
- Sing-Along Theme Songs (A huge treasure trove of songs about Science, Math, and Social Studies.)
A classroom teacher, Mrs. Jones, has created the lyrics that teach these concepts and set them to familiar tunes such as, “Farmer in the Dell,” “Bingo,” and “The Hokey Pokey.” Each song has printable lyrics and an audio version of the tune – so you can sing along!
When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of choices. Select the topic of interest and a new page opens with a menu of songs. Click on any one and a new page opens where you can read the lyrics and hear the tune.
Setting things that require rote memorization to music, makes learning easier and a whole lot of fun! Plus, as the website explains, “Singing gives us playful opportunities to practice oral language, dramatic expression, creative movement and motor skills.”
If you need more convincing, don’t miss the archive of articles and links to websites (located on the homepage below the menu of songs) that site research studies about the role of music in brain development and learning.
