Bobbie Kalman’s new Rapping about… books are curriculum-based learning tools that teach, not only information, but how to make learning any subject a lot more fun! Using rhyme and rap motivates students to read. It helps them increase vocabulary proficiency and comprehension. Unfamiliar words are more easily decoded with the clues the children attain through rhyme. Rap also promotes active learning, the retention of essential curriculum content, and love of reading and writing. Children learn not just with their brains, but also by listening, feeling, and moving to the beat. The use of entertaining photographs and fun text are strong learning motivators.
