Teaching Tips from Jack Hartmann:
    When I sing the chorus “Pop, pop, popcorn words”, children can move their hands open and closed alternately -- like popcorn popping. Then spell the words with me and say the word out loud.
    There are many high frequency/sight words. It sure helps with successful reading if children can quickly recognize these words. Use the open version of this song (included) to practice other high frequency words and visuals.
