The "magic of Rhyme" has made learning easier and more enjoyable
for my students and science workshop participants over my 41 years
of writing and using my Science poems and songs. I'll share that
"magic" with you through the pages of my book.
Mr. Musmanno invites you to enjoy learning the important science
education involved in the NSTA's And New Jersey Science Core
Curriculum content Standards. The poems in the book will be easy
and enjoyable to learn because they rhyme. For example, you will
learn about an insect from the grasshopper poem. The chorus to the
poem goes-"I am an insect, I've got six legs you see. And three
parts to my body-I am an insect. The "magic of rhyme" will make
learning easier most of the time. Many years ago, when I first
started teaching, I was told that the vice principal would be
coming in to evaluate my lesson on the upcoming Monday. I was
worried and wanted to do my best. We were studying the cell and the
vocabulary included the words-endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondrion,
protoplasm, etc.. A lot of my students had trouble reading so I had
to develop a lesson that would enable them to be able to pronounce,
read and understand the vocabulary and the lesson about the cell. I
was a lead singer in a band in my younger years and realized that
the rhymes to the lyrics of the songs made it easy for me to
remember and understand.
So, I wrote my first science poem and science song-The Cell. I
drew the parts of the cell on the board, labeled them and explained
what the parts did. The students copied the drawing and the
information. Then as a review of the lesson, we read the cell poem.
The kids were able to pronounce the words and understand them
through the "magic of rhyme."
The kids loved it and my principal said it was a great lesson
and great poem.
Use the poems in my book to help you or someone else near you
understand the concepts of Science. I even invited my students to
write Science poems about the science we were studying. They even
wrote Science Songs. I taught for 41 years using my poems and songs
about science to stir up the "magic of rhyme" in my classroom and
science workshops to make the learning easier and more enjoyable. I
was even sent to Puerto Rico and South Korea to teach Science
teachers and school principals "hands on Science lessons" and share
my poems and songs with them. They're probably using my poems and
songs right now. Now I've included many of them in my book. Enjoy
the "magic of rhyme" to make your learning easier and more
enjoyable most of the time.
