Using Music to Teach Reading to Kindergarten Students

Abstract

A common struggle for teachers, of typical and ESE students, is teaching the students to learn how to read with fluency.  Kindergarten students especially those who are in school for the first time or ESOL students struggle to learn how to read fluently.  Songs may offer a change from routine classroom activities and can offer students an alternate approach to learning and uses different learning styles to reach a greater range of learners.    Using songs can help students to learn to recognize words easier through repetition.  This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Kristen Rodriguez.  It focuses on using music to teach read reading to kindergarten students
