Jazzles – Changing Students Lives

-

With the upgrade to CCSS Jazzles ELA, I’ve been getting wonderful feedback from our teachers. “My students continued to LOVE Jazzles this year. It is extremely engaging and has helped tremendously with phonemic awareness. I used the phonemic awareness activities from the lesson plans daily. I like the new Jazzles ELA interface, especially Jazzleoke 3. The advanced lesson plans are very complete as well. The websearch integration is a great way to easily incorporate reality. It makes it so convenient not to have to switch windows on the computer to pull up information. I have personally endorsed Jazzles to many teachers. I remember the first Sunday I found Jazzles when I was searching on the computer for new teaching material. I was so excited I could not wait for Monday to introduce Jazzles because I knew it would change my students lives.”
Note:
1. What more can you ask than a program that changes children’s lives!
2. While I do not attribute, take my word as a teacher that this feedback is as received.

My ‘Clever Kid’ Song is hot on the downloads!

-

It’s all across the net! And booming. We are getting over 1,000 downloads a day of this Rock Gospel music backed song that is all about children identifying with ‘things they can’t do yet’, and ‘things they can do now’!
Click to Hear or Right Click to Download.
It lots of fun but also serious literacy!
Prolifically alliterative, the lyrics activate 65 words in connected text – 36 different including 16 starting with colorful C, 21 sight words (4 above primer).
It’s a great example of how Jazzles ELA combines vocabulary development and sight words in context.
The animation cleverly creates comprehension using the Jazzles strategy of synchronizing visuals and lyrics in ‘Matching Captions that also automatically develop left to right tracking skills.
It’s perfect for all our Visual-Kinesthetic learners!
And great for a ‘Clever Kids Night’- a choral singing event with parents applauding as their children clap, tambourine-play and dance to the gospel rock!
Try it out. You’ll find it’s great for creating discussions and expanding oral language. Just sit the children down and chat about what they couldn’t do when they were babies, but they can do now.
I ask them to sit in a circle and take turns saying, “I have already learned how to skip, but soon I want to learn to ride a bicycle.”
Lot’s more learning strategies like this follow!

Nothing matches Jazzles for learning styles!

-

I love the feedback from our teachers. Here’s one from a teacher who works across PREK-G1 including ESL.
She covers today’s biggest educational challenge – mixed ability classes – and the importance of Jazzles with its VAK learning styles and engaging pedagogy.

“Here we are again – another semester and Jazzles too!
I use Jazzles all day and if I had my way I’d use only Jazzles but we have to use other stuff to!
Nothing else matches Jazzles for the multiple styles of learning it encompasses.
Along with recording the results on ESGI, I think it makes a HUGE difference!
This year we have younger children – lots of English as second language, speech problems, no English and low socioeconomic backgrounds.
So they are 3 and have come with very limited knowledge of colours, shapes, letters, their own names, listening, manners.
I spent most of the last day of the 2011-2012 school year in tears.
The parents were so lovely in all the words they said.
One dad cried too! They were so appreciative of how far their children had come and the fun they had with Jazzles and they all loved the regular Friday afternoon karoake (JazzleOke Friday) shows.
I’ve been teaching for a while now & I recommend Jazzles to everyone I meet!
Thought you’d like to know.”

Note: Jazzles is great for parent nights! Lots of parents end up in tears!
