The Advantages of Learning Memory Work through Song
How quickly can your homeschooler name all 50 U.S. states? It sounds simple, but rattling off all those names from memory can be difficult. However, the simple trick of working them into a song can make memorization a breeze!
The advantages of learning through song do not stop at the memorization and mastery of U.S. geography. This classic approach to homeschooling sets key concepts to the beat of a song, a foundation upon which students can build as they continue their education.
Although elementary students may not fully comprehend all the facts they are learning through music at the time, when the topic comes up in coursework during their later years, the basic information is already at their disposal for deepening their understanding of the topic.
By learning through song, children can absorb facts on the periodic table of elements, verbs and tenses in a foreign language, human anatomy systems, and more. The approach inspires and provides natural learning opportunities for students as the facts fall off the tongue during tests or intellectual discussion. Best of all, learning through song is not only beneficial for education, but it’s also a lot of fun!
