Sing, Sing, Sing!

Dear Parents,

You don’t have to be a rock star to enjoy singing with your child.  Music is one of the most powerful ways to help children get ready to read. 

1.    What songs do you remember from your own childhood?
     Sing those to your child. 
2.    Ask your child to teach you a song that he has learned at
3.    Check out children’s recordings from the library.  These
     are great to listen to as you do chores around the house
     or travel in the car.
4.    Make up motions for songs.  You can dance, clap, jump,  
     patty cake, or do other movements.
5.    Can’t think of a song to sing?  I bet you’ll remember some of

Skip to My Lou            Twinkle Little Star                   If You’re Happy
BINGO                          London Bridge                        I’m a Little Teapot
This Old Man               Lassie and Laddie                  Muffin Man
My Bonnie                   Three Blind Mice                     The Wheels on the Bus
Hush Little Baby         Hickory Dickory Dock             Coming Round the Mountain
Yankee Doodle           Rain, Rain, Go Away              Pop Goes the Weasel
Mulberry Bush             Eensy Weensy Spider            You Are My Sunshine
Old MacDonald           The Farmer in the Dell            Frere Jacques
Found a Peanut          Jingle Bells                               Row Your Boat
Happy Birthday           Alphabet Song                         Buffalo Gal

over the Mountain

                                                Happy singing!
