During one of my internships during my education experience at St. Bonaventure University, I was placed in a kindergarten setting. To teach the letters of the alphabet, everyday, students sang a song with a clever rhyme for each letter as well as hand-signing in ASL for each letter. This really benefited students in my experience because they all were engaged through multiple means of communication. I know in the future I look forward to using song or music within my classroom in order to better reach each and every student.

During one of my field placements at St. Bonaventure University, I was in a pre-k classroom. Music was used a lot in the classroom; they used music to learn the days of the week, months of the year, and as a way to practice language development. The students really enjoyed singing to the songs and I found myself singing right along with them. I think it's really important to incorporate music into the classroom because it's another way for the students to have fun and it's important for brain development.

I currently teach Universal Pre-Kindergarten and I find that my students not only learn material better when music is integrated but many of them also enjoy it more. It seems as though the children are able to retain knowledge and information that is connected to music or a tune as compared to when information is taught without the use of music. I do my best to incorporate music at every chance in my classroom because I can see that there are many benefits.
