KindergartenSingingSongs are a wonderful and fun way to learn about language. Singing slows down language so that your child can hear the different sounds that make up words. Research shows that when words or phrases are sung or chanted, they can be remembered more easily—since the brain creates patterns or pathways through repetition.

What you can do now-
  • Sing the alphabet song to learn about letters.
  • Sing nursery rhymes so your preschooler can hear the different sounds in words.
  • Clap along to rhythms in songs to hear the syllables or sounds that make up words.
  • Think up rhyming words and make up songs to go with them.
