How often can we hear a few beginning chords, recognize a song, and sing the words after a 25 year hiatus? Music seals memory. All lyrics to these catchy tunes are printed both in the song section of Plumdiggity!™ Developing Student Writers and throughout the chapters. Each song has a lesson that explores comprehension, interpretation, punctuation, or word function.
