I love creating fun chants and songs to teach, especially in early reading. It is amazing how attaching music or rhythm to important concepts helps beginning readers to memorize, internalize, and apply these basic skills while reading. The attached chants cover four important early reading skills:
--re-reading at difficulty
--saying the first sound of a tricky word
--using parts you know to read a tricky word
--self-monitoring by checking through the whole word
Feel free to add motions to go with the words in each chant to amp up the fun even more!
