Welcome to Making Music Fun, Music and Literacy Collections by Christie Noble and Tracy Stener

The Making Music Fun Collections are great songs, stories and activities for a music class, preschool, daycare, kindergarten or primary classroom.  Songs and stories to teach shapes, colors, occupations, farms, zoos, dinosaurs, transportation and phonemic awareness are included.  The collection comes with a disk that includes a performance/accompaniment CD as well as PDF files for projection, printables for the students, and SMART Board files of many activities. Tracy Stener and Christie Noble have created a hands on resource for PreK-Grade 1 music classes or literacy classes.

Children love the silly sound effects, the opportunities to play instruments, movement activities and singing storybooks. However, this book provides the teacher with much more than a great song collection. The lessons and activities that are included will help your pre-readers, emerging readers and readers to improve their listening skills and their beginning reading skills. There are several story books and fairy tales with songs and sound effects included in this collection. The songs and sound effects turn the stories into a reader’s theatre for your classroom or for performance. 

The songs in this collection provide a wonderful source of predictable stories. Predictable texts supply needed support to emergent readers, who often enter reading by memorizing texts they have heard many times. When the predictable text is combined with illustrations - either as manipulatives that the students will sequence, or as SMART Notebook activities - you have a powerful tool for language learning!
