Did you know that music helps strengthen and teach reading concepts?
Yes, it's true.
This worksheet I will modify for younger students, but this photo was from a third grade student.
What are some presents that the student could have written on the second line?
Are you all familiar with the national non-profit company called, Little Kids Rock?They are an amazing company; LRK transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools.
They partner with school districts, training public school teachers with innovative curriculum, and donating all of the instruments and resources necessary to run music programs.
LRK does this because they believe that playing music is more than just ‘fun’ for kids - it is transformational and vital.
I have been certified to teach using the LKR curriculum and they have donated 30 acoustic guitars, 1 electric guitar and 1 electric bass for me to use in the classroom of my choice.
Here is a photo of one student getting his hands on an electric guitar for the first time! It was SO exciting.
