Learn It With a Song

This video highlights an easy engagement idea that supports memory and learning of content via music and rhythms. Start with any key concepts, then generate a song from a common melody, such as “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or “Jingle Bells.” Switch it around—start with a simple song and put a key concept to it. Listen in—then try it out for any content you teach.

“Are you listening, are you learning, teacher friends, teacher friends? Music creates memory, rhythm leads to learning. Good for you, good for me!”
