Using Music to Enhance Instruction!!

For the entire lyrics = please visit the link given at the bottom of post- Lots more songs to download for FREE available...

Students- no matter what age group- learn concepts quickly, when music is integrated into lessons. I have often used music with Language arts, Math, and Science- and have found that my students LOVE to listen to the songs and quickly memorize lyrics, which seems to help them master the content faster. Plus- it's much more fun to teach when you get to sing...

Here's another idea- Let your students change the lyrics for other topics/concepts! For more songs and FREE songs to download each month- Go to Make sure to sign up for their newsletter- and each time they post a FREE song for downloading- they'll send you an email, with a link... It's awesome!!!!
