How to Sing with Toddlers ‘The Hanen Way’
The power of music is undeniable. Music can soothe and calm, it can distract children during stressful or difficult moments, and it can also be exciting and stimulating and make kids want to dance! Toddlers (aged 1-3 years) enjoy music in a variety of ways, including moving to the rhythm, dancing, beating a drum, doing some of the actions, and even singing the words of familiar songs.
Singing with your child the ‘Hanen Way’ means:
- Building in opportunities for your child to participate during the song.
- Using repetition to help your child learn new words.
Singing the “Hanen Way” encourages your toddler’s social, cognitive, and communication development while the two of you connect and have fun together!
