From a very young age, children learn, grow and develop through and with music. As adults, we all hum the tune of the ABC song as we’re doing our filing “ABCDEFG…” (see, you’re doing it right now). Using music on a consistent basis with children can both teach and reinforce key concept and socialization. The best part is that they don’t even realize that they’re learning as they go through the motions. As you’re getting your pre-schoolers ready for school, think about how you can incorporate music into your daily routine that will excite, engage and prepare them for the day.
Each of the songs on Name Your Tune was chosen for what it would bring out in a child including learning, playing and engaging.
Songs for learning key concepts:
- There are Seven Days ~ the days of the week
- The Rainbow Song ~ colours
- Mr. Sun ~ weather
- There’s a Hole in the Garden ~ nature
Songs for playing & interacting:
- If You’re Happy and You Know It
- Head and Shoulders
- Wheels on the Bus
- Old MacDonald
One of the best things about music is that it’s always with you. Once you learn a song, you never really forget it. As a parent or care-giver, it is your greatest and most transportable tool because you always have it with you and can pull it out whenever you need an activity or a pick-me-up.
Adding Name Your Tune to your child’s music collection you get all of the above and more. With Name Your Tune, each song is uniquely personalized to include the child’s name in every song, making them feel special and proud. What a great way to start the new school year.
