Connecting Reading to Music

Connecting Reading to Music

I know and believe that reading is the ONE skill that is a must for children to master in order to be successful.  Music requires reading and writing and involves science and social studies as well as personal discipline and self control which lead to high self esteem. 

As a result I decided to make it my goal to connect reading to music through the use of a karoke machine and appropriate karoke music plus find children’s literature that is musically related and show how songs are stories and stories become songs and how songs are created from the written word.
