This musical series provides an excellent learning strategy for children developing their skills in language arts.  These engaging song activities help cement the spelling and reading concepts necessary for fluency.  In addition, children are exposed to a variety of musical genres and formats while staying within a certain formula for learning which always includes a ‘contributory portion,’ where the children write part of the lyric.  As one little boy put it, “I love this part!”  We hope you do too!
