Here’s today’s challenge!
As an educator, have you ever heard of any publisher focusing on engagement as the single most important contributor to our children’s learning outcomes?
Yet a major, 2007 PISA (OECD) study, shows levels of ‘engagement’ is the the single factor that differentiates nations with the highest and lowest levels of student achievement.

A few days ago, I said I’d pitch Jazzles ELA against any PreK-G1/ESL curriculum program, knowing from experience it will win hands down!

So impressed was this Missouri kindergarten with Jazzles, she wrote a brilliant thesis that explains why Jazzles works.

My kindergarten students sing along with the Jazzles songs constantly and I was astonished to see how much their (DIBELS, Scott Foresman Reading Street and Reading A-Z) scores improved after incorporating the JAZZLES songs. Using actions helps with the total brain stimulation and actually rote memorization as well.

So here’s why I’ve spent my own money creating multimedia resources that emotionally and intellectually engage at extraordinary levels, while also creating harmonious, happy environment, that produces spectacular results.

Why children ignore school bells when Jazzles is around!
As a teacher, I have designed every aspect of the program to do the heavy lifting in terms of VAK engagement, internalization and recall.

So what does the heavy lifting? What creates mixed class unity?
It’s the Jazzles song-powered multimedia resources integrating with performance that ‘dynamizes’ highly engaging VAK learning.

Think of Jazzles as ‘American Idol’ for literacy!
Apart from the amazing memory power of music and song, we have all experienced the power of group singing to motivate and elevate feelings.

Technically, Jazzles songs can be scientifically described as ‘ear-worms’ – ‘a piece of music that gets stuck in your head so you hear it, even when it‘s not being played’. Uniquely, Jazzles applies ‘ear-worms’ strategically and comprehensively to its English Language Arts System – specifically targeting beginning reading skills and oral English.

Leaving animation aside, Jazzles songs are prolifically alliterative. Children love alliteration that in songs, acts as a very powerful, language mnemonic – particularly in developing Oral Vocabulary, Phonological Awareness and Alphabetic Principle – 3 of the five most important predictors of future literacy success.

JazzleOke 1 – it’s a powerful, scaffolded ‘pot-pourri’ of VAK-ELA learning!
Singing, cartoons, captions, involuntary/repetitive movements of hands
and feet moving in synchrony … no other program moves children to learn like Jazzles ELA!!

The emotional engagement of group singing and animation enhances the meaning of the ‘matching captions’ – and the ‘matching captions’ in turn incorporate built-in phonological learning.
That’s why each Jazzles ELA unit is a ‘learn to read’ power pack!

Every time students, interact with a JazzleOke 1 they are seeing, hearing, singing, and moving by tapping, dancing or playing a percussion instrument to the beat, performing by miming or using actions. Every child’s learning style profile is engaged for optimal learning.

AND, they are actively learning the 6 big beginning reading skills while happily practicing oral English!

Jazzles song-themed Lesson Plans expand and consolidate with the social interaction of Visual and Performing Arts.

Following on from JazzleOke1’s interactive learning, your ‘reading stars’ can perform ‘karaoke style’ to JazzleOke 2 and JazzleOke 3 with backing tracks. Their fun performances effortlessly practice reading skills (L- R tracking and return sweep, one to one correspondence, letter/sound/word correspondence) and oral English while developing confidence!

For those interested in educational frameworks based on research in the learning sciences, Jazzles is following the three core principles of the Universal Design for Learning:
• multiple means of engagement (VAK)
• multiple means of action and expression(Visual and Performing Arts)
• multiple means of representation

Name another beginning ELA/ESL program that has children so eagerly and happily practicing!
