The Music Room

Note: Kids of all ages may enjoy the songs and/or find them helpful for memorization of grammar and spelling rules.

Rote memorization of grammar and spelling rules can be boring and ineffective. When you set rules to music — they are easier to remember. That’s the premise of this site that provides songs that teach language arts rules such as:

  • Contractions
  • Synonyms & Antonyms
  • Homonyms
  • Persuasive Writing
  • Vowel Rules
  • Adverbs
  • Nouns, Adjectives, & Verbs
  • Spelling Rules
  • Vocabulary
  • and much more

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of Language Arts songs — just click on the topic of interest to you and a new page opens displaying the lyrics to the song that is set to familiar music. In most cases, you will hear an audio clip of the music as well. Not only that, some of the titles link to other sites with fun music videos. (Don’t miss the “When Two Vowels Go Walking Song” that links to a music video from PBS’ reading program, “Between the Lions.”)

When you’re through learning about Language Arts, check out the rest of the menu to find songs that help kids learn Math, Science, and Social Studies. There are even “Just for Fun Songs” that include links to other sites with popular children’s music.

In some instances on the site, you will find information about how to purchase some of the music on CD. There is no obligation to purchase to hear most of the musical lessons provided on the site.
