As we’re in the last week before Christmas you’re likely using music to stay in the holiday spirit.
Did you know that singing songs with the family not only builds connection and community among you all, but also builds in literacy skills?
Many songs have new vocabulary, rhyming, and syllables that are drawn out and sung. When children hear and use these in music, it will give them background information they need when they’re working on targeted reading and writing skills.
There are so many songs out there it is likely hard for you to choose which to play. If you ask the kids what they want to hear it’s often the same things and you’re probably growing tired of the same songs replayed over and over.
That’s why we recommend visiting this Parents.com website. This webpage has put together songs for wrapping, songs for baking, songs for the car, and so much more.
What’s your favorite Christmas song?
