Ready to Read: Singing

Singing slows down language so children can hear the different sounds in words. This helps when children begin to read printed language. 
  • Sing the alphabet song to learn about letters. 
  • Sing nursery rhymes like "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" or to childhood favorites like "The Wheels on the Bus."
  • Clap along to the rhythm in songs so children hear the syllables in words.
  • When you sing, babies are drawn to the sound of your voice and to the playful sounds of words and rhymes.
