Songs & Rhymes


songs rhymesMusic and songs develop listening skills, which are an important part of communication.  The repetitive nature of songs and rhymes help your child's language development.  Rhymes with body movement and finger plays make them interactive and fun.  Make up silly, new songs by incorporating your child's name or toys.  


Develop a bedtime routine that includes reading a book and singing a song.  Songs and rhymes can be great distractions when your child is tired or fussy.  Singing and humour can improve many situations.
