Songs that Teach: Using Music in Your Homeschool Day
Have you ever wondered if songs could help your children learn, during your homeschool day? The answer is definitely yes! Multisensory learning is so important and helps information stick. Using music in your homeschool day is always a plus.
As a homeschool family for many of my kids’ school years, one of the best aspects of the journey was the flexibility to learn in ways that made learning fun, engaging, and even more importantly, made the learning stick. Songs are great for this.

Have you ever noticed how songs seem to stay in your head? It works for learning anything. (Brain and memory research validates this, by the way!)
One of the teachers my son had in a learning center class once told him, “You have a song for everything!” So true! My kids learned many grammar rules with a CD in the car. They learned some geography that way, too.
We absolutely loved this grammar CD. And if we ever forget the function of direct objects or need to know the correct form of an irregular verb, no worries; the song will pop into our heads forever!
There’s one for history, too.
We had song CDs for several subjects. My kids are both college graduates now, and I miss those days of singing in the car. (Although, we still find ourselves singing some of these songs!)
