Music and Literacy

As educators we have always known that the teaching of music and literacy go hand in hand. We observe the sheer delight and engagement of children who are allowed to connect these subject areas seamlessly as they do in real life. The activities on this website are works in progress, inspired by students and teachers alike, with whom we have had the privilege to work.
