Posts from Your Archives – The Power of Singing. It’s Far More Than Music by Jennie Fitzkee

“Where words fail, music speaks” – Hans Christian Anderson- Singing often brings more to children than words. I sing everything and everywhere with children at school.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Singing is a therapy with no cost! It is so amazing within a classroom! I have Friday Karaoke with my nursery class!!! It’s fun, and builds confidence too!

  5. I think it’s marvelous that you do that, Jennie. There is such power in singing, in music. It communicates far more than the words or notes. Even my cat likes to be sung to. Have a thriving Thursday!
