Writing educator Luana K. Mitten and Grammy? Award-winning children's songwriters Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer show you how to integrate music and literacy in your K-2 classroom! The ten songs on the included CD are the subject of twenty standards-based mini-lessons that allow you to teach phonemic awareness, visualization, letter and sound identification, movement, and specific writing-craft skills. Use the short, music-linked literacy lessons during transitions to calm or energize students and as an instructional tool to bolster reading fluency across the content areas. This collection of musically inspired "mini-teaching moments" will delight and motivate students and fill your class with song! Includes a bonus track and two bonus lessons!
