Growing into Readers

Singing Activities

  • Make your own instruments like egg shakers or drums. There are many household items that can be easily transformed into an instrument. Instruments allow children to be creative, learn a new beat or rhythm, which helps with reading skills.
  • Have a dance party. Do something silly like wear bells while you dance, dance to a new type of music (opera, country, hip hop). Visit the library and check out a new music CD.
  • Get up and move! Visit the library and check out a CD by Jim Gill or Laurie Berkner. These great children music singers create songs that promote interactive action and direction based music for young children to follow along.
