  • 10. Creating optimum, happy learning environment with social interaction and musical activities.
  • 11. Creation of 'singing-activated', common, oral language and reading text bases - irrespective of the range of vocabulary levels (including ESL) in every mixed ability class.

At the core of Jazzles ELA success is its exceptional levels of engagement - close to 100%. A 2007 PISA (OECD) study, showed levels of 'engagement' was the single factor that differentiated the nations with the highest and lowest levels of student achievement. Engagement should be a critical, if not the highest rated factor in selection of curriculum resources. If, you believe that, try Jazzles ELA and be surprised.

In a Missouri Kindergarten, 50% of children on free lunch, 38% achieived year-end literacy in the first trimester. Said the teacher, 'I was astonished to see how much their DIBELS scores improved after incorporating JAZZLES songs.'
