I have a Master’s degree in Education, am a class teacher and a drama pedagogue. I have worked as a class teacher for 8 years. I learned about the Songdrawing Method three years ago and it has become an important method that I use in my class at least once a week. I have noticed that songdrawing suits pupils of all ages and also functions well in a group of pupils of various ages.
As the national curriculum develops, the boundaries between different subjects become blurred and learning becomes integrated. Songdrawing fits well into this philosophy – I use the method in music, art, english, and science classes.
In my experience, songdrawing also supports the development of speech production. For a child who finds it difficult to produce speech sounds, drawing works as support for the child’s spoken expression, both sung, told and rhymed.
