- Sing the ABC song in different ways. Sing it Opera Style, sing it Rap Style, sing it Rock and Roll Style. This way you can hear the difference in how the letters sound. This is a great way for young children to learn to hear sounds, words, rhyme and rhythm.
- Sing songs with actions such as “The Itsy Bitsy Spider,” “Five Little Monkeys Swinging from a Tree,” or “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” These encourage children to learn the song, but the hand movements as well. Interactive songs inspire fine motor skills, communication, collaboration, observing, predicting, math skills and measurement.
