Go on, open up the packet. What's inside? 10 minutes of interactive music education games for children?? Fantastic! Here are the games on today's show:
First up a Clap It Back game called "What's On The Menu" I say things that are on the menu. You clap back the rhythm of the words. It's fun, easy and helps develop a sense of rhythm. If the foods were actually available then it would be a very promising new restaurant concept. ✪
Before today's echo songs you'll hear a brief description of how some songs are written which will help demystify how an instant classic like Funky Little Porcupine comes to be. It's not rocket scientist. It's much fancier. ✪
We end with a Call and Response written by the eternal Ella Jenkins. The song is called Dulce Dulce and it is a fun music game that will help your child learn rhythm, melody and the Spanish word "Dulce." Ella Jenkins was not Hispanic but hopefully this Spanish word song will inspire some Hispanic Heritage Month singing and playing even as the official celebration month draws to an end. ✪
We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson for kids you can do on the way to your swimming lesson.
