Some kids just love to be silly and sing the same song repeatedly! And who doesn’t love to sing Happy Birthday?
In this video Emely sings Happy Birthday in a variety of silly voices. When kids participate they learn how to follow directions and stretch their thinking to do things in new adaptable ways.
For example, have you ever had a situation where your child needed to sing a song a specific way and didn’t want to change it up? By creating intentional situations to get them to adapt and be flexible you are building their regulation skills to support their readiness to learn.
