Songs encourage active learning, promote discussion, and help children remember what they learn. From reading and social studies to math and science, Cantata Learning songs support the curriculum.
With so many great songs available, we thought we would help you discover new songs to include in your lessons. So, we’ve launched our Song of the Month emails. Each month, you’ll receive a link to a free song you can either stream online or download. The songs we choose tie-in with topics or events you’re probably already planning on sharing with your students.
April’s Song of the Month is Kookaburra. This is a fun song to use during National Poetry Month to teach about rhyming but it also has great tie-ins with social studies and science. Check out this project Teacher Librarian Shannon McClintock Miller did with students in Australia using Kookaburra.
