“Familiarity with songs and rhymes helps bridge the gap between speech and print and cultivate the sense that what can be sung or recited can be written or read.”
- Donald R. Bear et al. Words Their Way, 2000
“Songs selected for their patterns can familiarize children with high-frequency sight vocabulary. Songs can also be used to reinforce phonics elements in an enjoyable way.”
- Nancy Lee Cecil& Phyllis Lauritzen, Striking a Balance–Positive Practices for Early Literacy, 1999
