Have fun, increase student engagement and maximize retention with music!
This song teaches students what fluency is and will help encourage them to read at the right pace and with expression while paying attention to clues like punctuation, word meaning, mood and phrasing.
I write lyrics inspired by and to the tune of popular songs and well known melodies such as those found in nursery rhymes, cartoon themes and jingles. Each time a student hears the popular tune, they will remember the alternate, educational lyrics that you have taught them and will get an unexpected mini-review.
It's the perfect evil plot from one scheming teacher to another!
I hope you will enjoy the energy music brings into your class, the confidence you will see from students who have an easier time retaining new vocabulary, and the improvements in comprehension that fluent reading brings.
