Music, Movement, and Early Literacy

  1. 1.  The best thing about singing and moving is that children are using the art of play to learn. When we sing songs, children will be able to hear the sounds of the letters that make up words, which will eventually help them make sentences. Furthermore, by moving around, children are learning to use their arms and legs, which will help children understand concepts such as holding a pencil, using a pair of scissors, to knowing which is the left foot and which is the right foot.  By singing and moving with your children they will associate learning with fun, which sets a remarkable precedence as they get ready to start kindergarten. When you sing and move with your child, make it exciting and play often because the more children learn, the more confidence they will have in school.
