I am fascinated by the high musical intelligence of many of our children. These children learn so well when we develop songs and rhymes to help them to remember important facts.
We have recently started using a great app: Maths Rockx to effectively help children to remember times tables. This is working for many children.
We have also developed some GRAMMAR songs to help children remember learning from Jolly Grammar.
The LEARNING STATION have many songs to help children to remember important facts.
Most children will respond well to regular use of music within their learning programs. Both parents and teachers can improve their children’s learning by utilising music, rhymes and songs to help children remember concepts.
Music is also useful for maintaining calm and concentration while children are writing or completing written work assignments.
Try playing quiet music when you want children to calm down, do their homework or improve concentration as they read or write.

Singing aids brain and language development as well as being a great aid for learning.
Encourage your children to put facts to music, raps or poems. This will make them SO much easier to learn.
There is no doubt that singing raises the enjoyment level of any classroom and is a great aid to learning.
We ALL have voices and can sing. The benefits far outweigh the slight embarrassment you might feel as you lead your youngsters in song!
“The only thing better than singing is more singing.”
– Ella Fitzgerald
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
