Product Description
This songbook contains over 50 fun songs about everything you need to learn in 6th grade Language Arts class, plus some other general writing and reading strategies!

This is the full, complete, up-to-date version of the collection of songs to sing with your class to help your students memorize and understand everything English, from double-negatives and semicolons to literary devices and reading test strategies. They are set to Christmas carols and popular tunes that your students will recognize. I know they work because I could hear my students humming during the midterm to recall information they needed.

You can use this collection to supplement almost any topic in your English class. There is more than enough material to last the whole school year!
