Kindergarten: Reading Sight Words in Music Class
At the end of the school year, the Kindergarten have a special ceremony where they display their research on one of their favorite topics. When my oldest daughter was in kindergarten, she chose to research mice. At this ceremony, each kindergartner speaks about their topic and receive a certificate of excellence. Following the ceremony, the kindergartners will sing two moving up songs. When I prepare, present, and practice the song, we incorporate their newly formed reading skills by having the students identify sight words and repetitive words. This also helps the students memorize the songs well.
