Solve it With a Song:  Why songs and fingerplays are great learning devices for children!


Who doesn’t love a good song?  Finger plays like “Itsy Bitsy Spider” or “5 Little Monkeys” are great for moving little fingers around.  Plus songs and finger plays are terrific for growing your little ones minds.


Songs are wonderful for building memory.  (Just try and go through your ABC’s without singing it in your head!)  Plus that song that you just can’t get out of your head.  I have had a spaceship song stuck in my head for months!  Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, we’re going to the moon.  AAAHHH!

Not to mention the math skills that your little one learns while doing those finger plays.  “5 Little Monkeys” teaches your child numbers and counting and they don’t even realize it!  They are just busy having fun.

Songs and finger plays are also a great way to get your child’s attention and calm them down when they need a distraction.   Try throwing in a little “Wheels on the Bus” when you are sitting at a restaurant waiting for dinner.  Sing a quiet lullaby to help your child go to sleep or a favorite song after your child’s gets hurt do get their mind off of the injury.

If you are wondering about the literacy aspect, songs and finger plays are great for many reasons.  Every time you sing a song, your child is learning to hear and distinguish between different sounds.  This builds a foundation for your child to begin reading because they will learn to associate the sounds with individual letters.
