Reading Comprehension

We can't teach kids to comprehend on a high level until we help them retain on a high level

  • As students retain more information from repeated reading, questioning becomes more complex.
  • By incorporating music, rhythm and rhyme with repeated reading, students drastically increase retention and background knowledge.

Research supporting the implementation of repeated reading of lyrical, poetic texts lead to improvements in word recognition, fluency, and overall reading proficiency.

The Benefits of Music

Music increases Reading Engagement and Performance.

  • Fusing music, rhythm and rhyme, with the proven fluency strategies of repeated, choral and assisted reading increase student engagement and motivation to read.
  • Fluency and background knowledge are key components of comprehension. By incorporating music with repeated reading, students not only increase fluency, they retain more information and rapidly build background knowledge.
  • To create life-long readers, we need to help kids feel and connect to what they read. Music provokes emotion and feeling. Fusing music to text connects emotion to words in a story
