Smarty Bunch songs are songs are set to the tunes of childhood nursery rhymes which enables a child to use their prior knowledge of these tunes to memorize and recall information quickly. The lyrics of the songs, written by Denise are concise, simple and to the point. Smarty Bunch makes the difference. Our focus is to stimulate the learning ability and growth in all students. After implementing our learning techniques students will own the skills taught for a lifetime.

Smarty Bunch encompasses kinesthetic, tactile, audio and visual learning styles through the use of games, interactive activities, and hands-on projects, as opposed to just worksheets. Experience has shown that worksheets alone have failed to create the energy and excitement that students desire in the classroom.

What Can Smarty Bunch do for your District?
After introducing Smarty Bunch program to your school or district, both new and veteran teachers will be armed with additional teaching tools that will yield the results you are looking for with regards to confidence levels, STAAR test scores, and more.

Teachers that have attended our workshops leave with a renewed excitement. After they have introduced Smarty Bunch techniques in the classroom, students are equally excited and look forward to the next lesson. In fact, veteran teachers are thankful for our fun and creative approach to a job they’ve done for many years, as well as new teachers who were looking for ways to get off to a great start. The energy is infectious.

Workshops can be conducted on and offsite. Follow up sessions are critical for maximum results. The workshop sessions also offer a make and take portion. If one of your goals is for long term success your teachers both new and veteran can’t afford to miss this opportunity.

The proof is in the scores and testimonies from parents, teachers and students… Implementing Smarty Bunch yields higher STAAR, TEST SCORES, helps at-risk students well rounded students, all ethnic backgrounds, and meets the No Child Left Behind Act head on.
