The Daily Herald – Ashley Mendoza

“You’re used to saying the “ABC”s with your children, but did you know singing the “Do Re Mi”s together can help them read better, too? Research supports music to be helpful in contributing to their development. Reading Rockets, a national multimedia literacy initiative that offers information and resources on how young children learn to read, reports how impactful music is in children’s literacy. According to the Reading Rockets report, “Music promotes language acquisition, listening skills, memory, and motor skills.

Singing also facilitates bonds between adult and child.” Directly working with music is one way children can partake of the benefits music has on children’s development and literacy.”(more)
