Songs for Learning! Playbook is a song-driven activity book that explores phonics, literacy, and language. Written by elementary school teacher and musician Matt Baron, this colorful book includes ten songs, which are all (secretly) aligned to learning themes. Literary devices, social emotional learning, spelling patterns, idioms and more are planted in the lyrics.
Suitable for independent work, group activities, and family time, all activities are exceptionally fun when paired with the songs that accompany the book (included free via mp3 and streaming). Activities can be completed without the music as well.
While all children will enjoy the Songs for Learning! Playbook, it’s ideal for early readers, kids who love music, and children whose first language is not English.
