About this project

Our S.O.L. Train Science CD is a long-awaited successor to our increasingly popular S.O.L. Train: Come On and Ride into Social Studies, CD.  The lyrics in our songs are saturated with important academic facts and concepts to help kids learn while they jam out to their favorite songs.  Our songs are current and upbeat, so they are fun for kids to listen to.  They are a great alternative for parents who want relevant, kid-friendly music, and teachers who want educational music that their students love.  The content is aimed at grades K-2, but older kids love to listen to the music.  We had one parent buy our Social Studies CD as a test review for her third grade child and another parent said that her 5th grader enjoyed the beats of our songs.

"My kids love the "Plant Dance," -PreK Teacher in Vienna,VA

"Can we do the "Quality Students" song?" - 3 yr old class in Vienna,VA

"Quality Students do it right."- Direct quote from our "Quality Students" song from a non-English speaking Kindergarten student in Manassas, VA

The list goes on.  The kids love the songs and they WORK.  

The units that we create  are specially designed to accompany the songs and always  include  a teacher guide. They help teachers to utilize these songs as teaching tools in the classroom. These units are also great for homeschool parents!  

We have recorded the Plant Dance and Five Senses. We have written songs for for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Matter, Magnets, Seasons, Light and Shadows, Sources of Heat, Water Cycle, The Scientific Process, and Life Cycle. We want to record at least 15 songs. We also want to include ideas from you. So please email us at soltrain.learning@gmail.com and let us know what you would like songs about. We want to provide a CD that will be a great tool for you and your kiddos!

With your generous donations, we will be able to start recording right after we are funded to do so. So, please donate whatever you can. Every little bit helps and please tell all your friends that would like to use a fun science cd to teach science. We appreciate any donations!

Risks and challenges

The only risk we see with completing this project would be timeline. We are working with two other people to record and produce the CD and will have to work with their schedules.

We will combat this risk by anticipating busy schedules and staying ahead of our deadlines. We currently have the "Plant Dance" and "Five Senses" completed.
