OKLAHOMA CITY -

Breaking through to a preschooler and actually teaching them schoolwork takes a lot patience.

But one local teacher sped up the learning curve in a unique way.

“I always found that music is a great way to learn things,” said Jarred Geller, who started “Punk Rock Preschool” at Eugene Field Elementary.

He's written eight educational songs that the 4- and 5-year-old students sing during the school day.

Geller plays the guitar and leads the music.

The lyrics cover everything from geography to pollution to careers.

“I saw that they got it really early on,” said Geller.

When quizzed, the students can recall the songs to answer questions.

“Four oceans,” said one student when asked home many oceans there are in the world.

“Seven,” said another student when asked how many continents.

Both those numbers were sang during the geography song.

The students have also made a video about shapes that you can watch on Youtube.

Geller hopes to film another music video in his classroom before the summer.

He also hopes other teachers will find the Punk Rock Preschool music useful and played it in their classroom.
