In this video, kindergarten teacher Diane Pedersen, of Finley-Sharon Elementary School, Finley, N. Dakota, explains how Jazzles songs promote reading by creating strong emotional engagement using a unique combination of play-based, musical themes and traditional early childhood classroom reading strategies.
Singing, she says, makes children feel happy, creates a sense of community and belonging, uplifting emotions and moods, to make practicing oral language a joy not a drag!
Instead of boring rote, Diane discusses how her class became so engrossed singing the Jazzles songs, they forgot it was dinner time! All because they love the Jazzles songs!
Happy children, she says, are happy learners and a happy learning environment creates the motivation for children, as natural learners, to achieve their potential
Tried and tested, two 2008 university-supervised theses support the experiences of thousands of teachers that Jazzles delivers all 6 essentials of literacy - Vocabulary, Phonemic Awareness, Alphabetic Principal, Comprehension, Concepts of Print and Fluency - with data showing kindergarten students achieving year end literacy standards within the first semester.
