There is a reason you can’t get jingles out of your head, or you can spontaneously sing the lyrics to an 80’s song you haven’t heard in years; learning through song makes content stick! Help your students internalize key reading strategies and skills by teaching them our catchy raps. Not only will they memorize important lifelong information, but they (and you!) will have fun doing it! If only our lives could turn into one giant musical … we’d be memory machines!
Each rap comes with an anchor chart to help students remember the key information. This anchor chart has an “info packed” version to help students learn key information, and a “simplified” version to use as a prompt when starting to memorize the rap.
