Read to the Beat (Virtual Offering)
Read to the Beat is an enriching, motivating, and fun environment for learning literacy skills. The program intertwines music and literacy using rhythm, rhyme and storytelling. Because music is a part of every culture and is not limited by age, music-based learning experiences are an exceptional way to increase engagement, social, interaction, and skill retention. Lessons are designed sing research-based methodologies and are multi-modal. Using music, participants explore a new theme each week, while also reviewing key concepts from previous lessons. Books and story-telling, playing of musical instruments, singing, listening, simple composition and movement experiences capture children’s imaginations while aiding in the development and strengthening of important literacy skills. The program utilizes drums, maracas, visual supports, and other manipulatives to help each child stay focused. Each group is one hour in length.
