- Keep tradition and sing a song from your childhood. Remind them who taught you the song and maybe the origin of the song.
- Sing a song with funny movements. “Head, shoulders, knees and toes,” “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” “The Wheels on the bus,” all have great movement and teach kids to move and use their voice at the same time.
- Sing a song with words that may needs some explanation. Many nursery rhymes have words that might need definition such “Jack and Jill,” What is a well? Alternatively “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” what is a waterspout? Many of these terms are obscure and may need further explaining.
