Action songs are a great resource when teaching little ones an additional language. They are meaningful, natural and fun.
Singing nursery rhymes and songs to children as young as babies can help develop their language and communication skills from an early age.
Moreover, when little ones listen to the words of the songs and watches the associated actions, they start to understand the words. They associate the words to the actions and in this way their vocabulary begins to build up. The gestures help children remember the meaning of the words.
When accompanying songs with actions we are offering children a wide variety of fun and playful ways to learn language, vocabulary and many educational concepts.
Using action songs is a great resource that enhances children’s hand-eye coordination, their listening skills and the ability to follow directions. Action songs foster self-confidence and help develop a love of music.
Remember that apart from bringing a lot of fun and excitement, Action Songs may also help little ones develop in many other ways.
