Abstract

The whole language concept emphasizes student involvement in the language processes to create meaning. This involvement can be supported by music activity. The rhythm, cadences, rhyming lyrics, and patterns found in songs make music a natural vehicle for introducing children to print and for nurturing language abilities. Musical experiences offer many opportunities for students to engage in the language processes of reading, writing, speaking/singing, and listening. This multi-sensory approach can heighten children's interest in language activity, thus nurturing their thinking-language abilities.
