ColloTunes are songs to help students of all ages and cultures learn English language arts, ESL, social studies, science, and mathematics.
Use these songs with your young learners and teens.
Collo = a high-frequency CHUNK of language
“freezing cold”, “have a party”,
“ask for the check”
9 x 8 = 72, 1/5 = 20%
SPARK! = Super-Powered Automatic
Recall of Knowledge
Collos build SPARK!
You know you have SPARK! when you…
…use phonics, grammar, and idioms
(without thinking about them).
…know the multiplication table
(without looking at it).
…know the names and locations of Central and South American countries
(without memorizing them).
