  • Counting song for toddlers

    Count with Me


    Introduce this counting song for toddlers to even your youngest students to help them start understanding numbers. Children begin developing math skills (such as counting to 10) before they fully understand the concept. Attaching numbers to objects or one-to-one correspondence is the next step in their mathematical development. Charlesworth and Lind (2003) see one-to-one correspondence as “the most fundamental component of the concept of number.” Count with Me is a great counting song for toddlers that will introduce this concept to your preschoolers.

  • Days of the week song

    Days of the Week


    Help your students learn new concepts with this days of the week song. Children’s understanding of time, also known as temporal understanding, is not meaningful for children below first grade (Friedmann, 2000). Instead, the temporal concepts such as before lunch and after nap have much greater meaning. The learning goals associated with calendar time are more heavily weighted in math rather than time for this reason. Knowing what the date is i.e. January 2nd, 2016, is much less meaningful to young children than once though. Therefore, the purpose of knowing the days of the week is more rooted in vocabulary building than expecting children to know that tomorrow that if today is Monday, tomorrow is Tuesday. This days of the week song is a great way to introduce your students to this new vocabulary and prepare them to understand time later in their development.

  • rhyming song for toddlers

    Down by the Bay


    This traditional rhyming song for toddlers is a great way to teach children about rhyming. Why is rhyming important? In a study with four and five year old children, Bryan and Bradley (1985) report that scores on initial rhyming tests predicted reading and spelling progress three to four years later. These researchers suggest rhyming facilitates reading and spelling. Once they get to know the song and understand how to create a rhyme at the end, sing the song a capella allowing the children to come up with their own rhymes. No need to have them make sense. Creating nonsense words that rhyme helps illustrate their understanding of the concept of rhyming and promotes creativity!

  • Rhyming song for toddlers

    Higgelty, Piggelty, Pop!


    When children are exposed to rhymes from books and nursery rhymes, identifying and producing them comes naturally. This basic phonological awareness skill indicates they can distinguish the ending sounds of words. “Higgelty, Piggelty, Pop!”, a rhyming song for toddlers, takes an active approach to rhyming by having the child’s body respond to the rhyming words. The rhyme also makes children aware that changing only the first letter of a word produces a whole new word. The extensions for this activity are plentiful and can be applied to a multitude of nursery rhymes. Research shows that students benefit from direct instruction on rhyme recognition when paired with fun activities that target this skill. Therefore, this rhyming song for toddlers is a great resource to practice rhyming!
