Keep the fun going at home!
Thank you for joining us for Capt. Scupper’s Songfest! We hope you will join us again for our next event, but in the meantime, you can enjoy the songs at home with the songbook below.
Please print it, read it, and sing it with your children. This song book is a literacy teaching tool. While pointing under each word as you read it, the adult reader might read, “Row, row, row your _____,” pointing under “boat” silently. The child will read the word “boat,” giving you the opportunity to say, “great reading!” Children will benefit from watching you model careful reading behaviors. They will learn tracking print, one-to-one correspondence, and left-to-right directionality. Repeated reading will help them develop phonemic awareness, letter-sound correspondence, and sight word recognition. Not only can reading this songbook with your children help you to build a loving literacy foundation, but it will also create happy, loving memories.
