A Musical Revolution in Learning
Bringing real meaning to abstract concepts using the power of music -- bridging the gap between reading, writing, grammar, and math!
Hi, thank you for visiting my site! My name is Melissa, the founder and creator of GrammarSongs: an innovative and memorable way to teach grammar, reading, and writing skills to students through music. And as a teacher with over 22 years of experience, I am now providing my gift to help both teachers and students achieve maximum success!
HOW DID GRAMMARSONGS BEGIN?
In a period of only 4 ½ years, I was responsible for teaching K, 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades (some of those in combination). Covering so much material in such a short time, I drew upon my musical inclination to turn abstract ideas in grammar and writing into stories put into song for students to learn from and enjoy.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
Within the classroom, I saw the success of music coupled with instruction. My students repeatedly were able to draw upon the material learned in song format and transfer it into other areas (e.g. writing, worksheets, analyzing literature). The songs were highly effective for my students, including students with various learning requirements who learned in nontraditional ways. These success stories inspired me to bring my gift of music and love of teaching and children to the world, and to YOU!
