Supporting English Language Arts Standards within the Context of Early Singing Experiences
Nordquist, Alice L.
General Music Today, v28 n3 p33-36 Apr 2015
Music teachers may integrate a variety of English language arts content standards into their curriculum to enhance students' music experiences while also supporting their language development. John M. Feierabend and Melanie Champagne's picture book adaptation of "My Aunt Came Back" lends itself to multiple singing and discussion activities that build children's phonological awareness, understanding of language conventions, and knowledge of word relationships.
