How I Use It
Videos can be shown whole group and then made available for individual viewing as the need arises. Learners of all levels can watch over and over if needed in advance of direct instruction AND/OR after as a reteaching resource. Each song has followup question and answer session that can be projected or completed independently. An activity sheet with information that is different from (but related to) the content of the video can be printed for students to complete. Lyrics can be printed for students to read along, if needed.
My Take
The catchy tunes and rap style lyrics help elementary students make sense of abstract ideas related to reading and writing. Topics such as fiction vs nonfiction, idioms, point of view, public speaking and more are valuable topics for this grade level.
