Today, I’d like to share with you one of my favorite arts integration technique.

Call and Response is fantastic to use with Common Core reading objectives for fluency and comprehension.  Not only that, but it’s a naturally brain-friendly activity that directly connects music skills with critical thinking and reading.  Plus, it’s a simple integration technique that you can put into practice immediately in your classroom!  Give it a try on the first day of school and you’ll have a great engagement tool that also provides a quick opportunity for assessment.  Gotta love that!
