Printables and Music

Your students and their parents will enjoy these printables and songs which you can share with them.

It’s important to remember that learning does not take place in isolation. Everything in the child’s world is interrelated, and concepts need to be continually repeated, reinforced, and connected.
• The visual skills children use to discriminate and remember colors and shapes will lead to the ability to
remember letters and words.
• The ability to recognize different animal sounds and reproduce animal sounds will lead to the ability to
recognize letter sounds.
• When children learn to repeat counting rhymes using their fingers, it will lead to their number sense and logic.
And that’s the real value of the Common Core Karaoke.

With every song and book you will be developing specific standards and MORE!

You can play mp3 files on your iPod, iPhone, iPad, or other phone or tablet. You can also burn them to a CD.

After you check out, you will see a screen with instant download links. Each of these packages will have a single link that downloads all of the printable pdf documents and the song file in one easy to use zip file.

You will also receive a confirming email with a link for each Common Core Karaoke packet you purchase. That email may be placed in your Spam folder or Junk Mail folder. Look in those folders for an email from support at drjean.org if you don't see the email in your Inbox.
