- Listen to a song with specific directions such as Old MacDonald, If you’re Happy and You Know it, or The Silly Dance Contest by Jim Gill. These songs with specific directions strengthen speech and language development, listening and comprehension skills.
- Put on your favorite song or songs. Work on jumping skills. Jump high and low, like a frog, like a kangaroo, and learn how to bounce. There are so many ways to practice this gross motor skill while listening to your favorite music.
- Recreate an interactive storytime at home with singing, dancing, fingerplays, reading, and movement. Sing songs from your childhood or new songs. It’s a creative way to incorporate singing into your daily life.
