Lyrics2learn is a brain-based, on-line reading program created by Jeremy Spartz, a 15 year classroom teacher and tutor. It was made as a daily reading center his students could do independently while he ran reading rotations.
Music is used to engage students with text and help them memorize information quickly. As kids retain more and more information due to the repetition, rhythm and rhyme, question levels increase (aligned with the Common Core Depth of Knowledge levels (D.O.K). Each center or min-lesson begins with literal comprehension on day 1, and ends with open ended constructed response. Every story uses this methodology. The more kids know, the more they’ll show.
If students do not retain a high percentage of the information they read, how can we expect them to connect on high levels and relate text to themselves and the world around them? Below, we have a few one minute videos to explain:
Students improve reading fluency, background knowledge, reading comprehension and test taking skills. Analyze results by class, student, concept, common core depth of knowledge and more.
My fourth graders and I love Lyrics2Learn! They love the beat and the rhythm, and I love that they're excited about working on their fluency... It’s a welcome change from the monotony of repeated reading. Many of the other fluency programs we’ve tried lack this quality comprehension component.
Teachers, parents and kids were excited about this reading program, and the improvement results from Lyrics2learn were shown at the end of the year during testing.
Lyrics2learn is awesome! I didn’t even know it was for reading. I thought it was just for fun and to hang with Mr. S.
When I first started Lyrics2learn, I was so excited because I never did something so fun! At first, I wasn’t doing so good cuz I wasn’t from here, but now I’m doing very good. I went from a bad start to a good finish.
I only had one student on Lyrics2learn, and she went from intensive to proficient! I’ll be using this activity with all of my students next year.
100% of my kids made benchmark, and over 60% of them doubled it when I used Lyrics2learn as a reading center every week.
Last week, I entered my team member's classroom to find every student in the class actively engaged in reading! I was stunned but really excited about the most powerful educational tool I've seen in a long time.
The students absolutely love L2L and most of them have already improved their reading level by more than a year.
My son loved the program while we did it. He had dyslexia and struggled with reading with all other programs except yours.
This year ALL of my students except one made growth in the double digits on their composite score for their EOG testing compared to where they were last year. For the grade level my class had the highest growth. I attribute their success to their use of L2L.
