Kindermusik educator Kathy Morrison recently received an email from one of her enrolled parents who is homescholing her children. The email read:
"I just found another HUGE benefit to the kids knowing all about steady beat. We recently began learning about syllables in words. I thought it would be kind of a tricky thing to teach, but I started by calling the syllables 'beats' and the kids didn’t have any trouble catching on. Once they were able to count the beats in a word (which didn’t take long at all), then I transitioned to calling the beats syllables. It was effortless! When one is homeschooling, there are few things that one can call effortless –- so thank you for setting up that foundation in my children!!!"
