As much as I enjoyed the time for family bonding and for helping the kids settle down for the night, research has shown that having stories read to children has many educational benefits as well.

Reading stories out loud to children: Provides them with a model of fluent reading.Allows them to consume content above their reading level (since they can listen at a higher level than they can read).Shows them the connection between the written word and its meaning.Teaches them the narrative structure of a story or book.Helps develop a love of stories, books, and reading that can carry on into the rest of their lives. Although there is no substitute for reading in person to a child, there are still many benefits from using technology to show videos of people reading stories.

Although I know I like using music in my teaching, I never thought there would be so much of it on this blog when I started it over a year ago.

I also think the key to a successful song-based lesson is to deal with the text as you would with any other type of short text, whether written or oral, to practise a variety of comprehension skills, work on specific grammar and vocabulary, or introduce a topic for discussion. Choosing a song that meets the students’ needs is not always easy, though. Missing Word Cloze - Online Exercises - English Grammar and Vocabulary. Our Collection. Encyclopedia Britannica.
