Phonics relies on a one voice cuing system, one that for many children is weak. Music is in almost every part of the brain. If one pathway is weak, music can help open others.”

Continue reading as the author explains how music with songs offers advantages for readers, especially struggling readers.

The author’s program PHONICS SONGS plus for grades one and two is based on original instructional song lyrics written by the author with the music and songs by Donny and Marie Osmond. PHONICS SONGS plus has important phonics skills embedded in each song and hundreds of high frequency reading words (sight words) appropriate for grades one and two.

Music with lyrics helps develop reading skills. The rhythm in songs is slower than speech and there is more separation of sounds This helps children develop the sounds for letters and improves auditory discrimination for sounds. The melody of songs can help with developing fluent reading skills. And the words in songs help in the development of language.

Phonics relies on a one voice cuing system, one that for many children is weak. Music is in almost every part of the brain. If one pathway is weak, music can help open others. With practice, songs build stronger connections between the right and left sides of the brain and can bring many to reading. Neuroscientists who have been studying sound, the auditory processing system, tell something extraordinary – listening to and singing music can benefit a child’s development including reading. Learning to read requires attention, engagement, and repetition, all a part of singing.

A difficulty with using songs for reading is that children often memorize the songs, and the words are in sequential memory. The author uses a finger-point reading activity with each song that has students identify words quickly putting the words into long-term memory and available for reading.

A difficulty with songs on a computer screen is that many children cannot follow the bouncing ball. Children need to point to each word.

Phonics Songs plus is based on a first-grade study using only songs and chanting that showed significant improvement in reading and attitude over traditional phonics. content

PHONICS SONGS plus is for all students, including students with reading difficulty and English as a Second Language.

The program is easy to use by parents and teachers and for those of us who go back a few years, Donny and Marie bring fond memories.
