What is singing English?
A FUN & EASY TO IMPLEMENT EARLY LITERACY PROGRAM
The most developmentally appropriate early literacy program available!
A powerful way to reach struggling readers!
A fun and inclusive method of teaching ESL students!
- Easy to implement; enhances current programs; and no music experience necessary!
This cutting edge, inspirational training provides educators of children 3-10 years of age with powerful tools, techniques, and easy to implement lessons for using song-games to teach children of all abilities to speak, read and write. Song-games are the most beneficial tools an educator can use to introduce reading and writing skills. By exploring movement, singing and sound to symbol written activities, teachers can introduce literacy skills that are developmentally appropriate; with a focus on the whole child and the understanding that children develop at their own pace.
