You CAN sing!

Posted on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 by Jenforkids

The Early Literacy tip for the week is on:

Phonological awareness: The ability to hear and play with the smaller sounds in words.

Did you know that singing is not just fun but actually quite important for children?  People claim that they can’t sing on key, but don’t let that stop you.  Singing slows down language and there is often a different note for each syllable of a word.  Both of these help children hear the smaller sounds in words.  This will later help them sound out words as they learn to read.

So, don't just sing in the shower, belt it out for all to hear!  The library has lots of CDs perfect for family fun.  You won't be able to stop humming along to the Laurie Berkner Band.
