Activity – Sing-a-Long!
Age Range – Preschool and Up
Area Being Developed – Language
Play your favorite child music that has clear words! Write the words clearly on your blackboard. Then as you all sing together, point to the words, syllable by syllable.
Research tells us that singing is one of the best vehicles for stimulating language in young children. Connecting the spoken word with the visual is the secret to this particular activity. Fun and learning at the same time, how good is that!
This kind of learning joy is a great example of emergent literacy at its best!
