"Hi, thank you for visiting! 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 for 1st - 5th grade levels. 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!"
"I am beyond excited to implement this in my classroom this coming year! Grammar can sometimes be, in all honestly, a little boring. These songs are fabulous and I know they will keep the kiddos engaged!"
- Tracey L.
SO, WHAT IS GRAMMARSONGS?
An exciting, new and award-winning approach to mastering English Language Arts for your student and child! Developed in the classroom to cover the standards in a unique way – utilizing original music – Melissa saw her student’s engagement rise. When she witnessed the enjoyment and success her students were experiencing, she put her songs into a video format to share her revolutionary approach with teachers, students, and parents around the world.
"My students and I really enjoy using GrammarSongs in the classroom. These songs appeal to a wide range of learners. I have gotten these songs stuck in my head many times, which is a good thing! Melissa presents this difficult to understand material in a way that is easy for the students to understand, all while being entertained and having fun. I have even used these songs to help my own children understand the difference between a homophone and homograph during homework time."
- Tina H.
OK! HOW DID GRAMMARSONGS BEGIN?
In a period of only 4 ½ years, Melissa 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, Melissa drew upon her musical inclination to turn abstract ideas in grammar and writing into stories put into song for students to learn from and enjoy.
"Hi Melissa, This is better than the best! I stumbled across this while looking for videos on how to teach personification. My students LOVED it (as did I) and I can't wait to incorporate more into lessons. I have shared with colleagues. Incredible! Thank you again!"
- Tiffany Adams
COOL! WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
Within the classroom, Melissa saw the success of music coupled with instruction: her students repeatedly drew upon the material learned in song format and transferred it into other areas (e.g. writing, worksheets, analyzing literature). The songs were highly effective for her students (her classes consistently performed in the top 1% of grades 3-5 in state exams) , including students with various learning requirements who learned in nontraditional ways. These success stories inspired her to bring her gift of music and love of teaching and children to the world – and now YOU!
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Grammar Songs! My daughter was a student of Mrs. Corbett’s in 5th grade, and learned so many wonderful songs. When she moved on to middle school she took those songs with her. Her Reading and English teachers were amazed at the questions she could answer because of Grammar Songs. Whenever a new topic came up her teachers would look at her and say "Emily, what's the Grammar Song for this one?" They became so popular that in 7th grade her teachers would call on her, knowing that she probably had a Grammar Song to go with the current topic. She has told me about students that were struggling until she taught them Grammar Songs, and then suddenly they realized it was easier than they thought! She is now headed to 8th grade and I am sure the Grammar Songs will be brought out again to teach a new class just how simple it can be with the right tune to sing along!"
