Key Classroom Curriculum Songs

'It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.' ~ Albert Einstein

Let’s get ‘resource full’!

If you’re a teacher planning your classroom program, how would you feel about tried and tested, teacher-created resources that not only motivate and encourage students to readlearn, and sing but also:

        target learning sequences of curriculum documents
        Introduce new units of work
        Kick start class discussion
        Summarise & reinforce curriculum learning content
        Aid recall of important information
        Extend literacy
        Reinforce positive behaviours
        Solve the problem of what to do for school assembly items, and more?

Well, there are teaching resources that achieve all of these outcomes and more ~ through curriculum-aligned songs!

My colleague (Kathryn Radloff) and I write songs & lesson materials that enhance, integrate and support classroom learning across key curriculum areas, including:
               Literacy
               Social Studies
               Science and Technology
               Society and Environment
               Creative & Performance Arts
               Health and Physical Development…

We currently have over 60, song-based, curriculum-aligned publications (downloadable as well as hard copy) to support classroom learning ~ there's even Curriculum KaraokeTM. They are born of a firm and passionate belief in the power of song for helping children learn. 

You can assess the quality of our work with a freedownloadable lyric sheet from our TPT store. While there, you will find full product details, song lyric samples, links to audio song samples, blog posts, etc.
Here are just a few song package suggestions to complement your class lessons & units (Click on the links below, to preview song audio and lyrics samples, etc, then keep scrolling to school student assembly performance video links, and to obtain a free eBook download :-)

I hope this is helpful, and that you find something to support your teaching program. 

FYI: My older blog posts give tips & suggestions for integrating song across the curriculum: *Singing To Learn *Lyrical Literacy *Lyrical Learning *Curriculum KaraokeTM 

Here's to a great school year, and all the best with your teaching!

Yours in singing to learn,

Nuala :-)

    1. It sounds as though we're singing from the same song sheet, Tara! There's no shortage of singing in my classrooms, either ~ especially singing to LEARN (our curriculum-aligned songs, of course ~ written for this purpose...! :-)
