Shake, Rattle n' Read
Music 'n Movement Fun Developing Phonemic Awareness and Reading Readiness Skills in Children
By Jack Hartmann

A collection of songs with good rhythms and cool beats, focusing on the most important research-based strategies that help children become successful readers. Use the songs to allow children to have fun with music and movement as they learn and practice these important skills, including the alphabet, letter sounds, vowel sounds, rhyming and print awareness, word families, identifying beginning sounds and motivation to read. Phonemic awareness can empower and build self-esteem in children because it gives them lots of skills to figure things out on their own.

2 versions of some songs allow for the teacher or parent to insert their own material, words or sounds into the song. Version 1 has recorded examples and version 2 has open space to fill in your own words. A web site where you can print off the lyrics and brief movement or activity ideas is printed on the CD.

Appropriate for ages 2 months + to listen to and learn!
