It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a team to create something exciting for children! Sam Williams (kindergarten teacher extraordinaire), Michelle Tsivgadellis (3amteacher and delightful graphics designer), and Alex May (webmaster genius) and I have been working on “Common Core Karaoke" for 6 months. Our goal was to take some of my songs that children enjoy and use them as a springboard to reinforce skills and standards.

Each song packet is full of many tools and suggestions to make
reading come to life in your classroom. Every packet includes:
· Download of the song
· A colorful sing and read book
· A reproducible independent reading book
· Lyric sheet
· Extension Activities
· Common Core “I Can” Statements for ELA and Math
* Each packet also comes with reproducibles to use in your Daily 5

Our first series includes these four songs that will be perfect for the beginning of the school year:
“Color Farm”
“Shape Family”
“Nursery Rhyme Rap”
“Five Little Hotdogs”

What every classroom needs in the coming school year is a little more JOY, and we hope our songs, books, and activities will add some smiles and fun to your day. Song packets are $4.95 each or $16.00 for the series of four. And, yes, we’ve got more series scheduled to come in the next year. We can’t wait to hear your feedback and suggestions for making “Common Core Karaoke” even better!
