The Future Hits, Songs for Learning! Playbook
Developed by Matt Baron, an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher and the head of educational rock band Future Hits, the Songs for Learning! Playbook is a song-driven workbook that explores basic vowel sounds and word construction. This colorful, fun workbook includes ten songs, which are all aligned to learning themes. Literacy, social emotional learning, spelling patterns, idioms, and more are planted in the lyrics!
The Songs for Learning! Playbook complements both independent work and group activities. The book includes word searches, drawing activities, brain teasers, guitar chords, crosswords, and the makings of a rousing game of charades. All activities are super fun when tied to the songs that come with the book, and they can be completed without the music. This book is perfect for all children, especially early readers and who love music. It’s also suitable for children for whose first language is not English.
Here's what Jeffrey Brown, Author and illustrator of Cat Getting Out of a Bag, Cats are Weird, and Darth Vader™ and Son, says about Future Hits Playbook...
“Part activity book, part songbook, part textbook -Songs For Learning! gives kids a ton of ways to have fun while learning, and will have them singing along the whole time (and reading, and drawing, and writing, and in all likelihood dancing, too). I think it's a great idea, I'm surprised others haven't done this. Now that I've seen [the book], I can't see it being done any other way.”
