Music is an integral part of a quality early childhood curriculum. It plays a role in setting the tone of the classroom, developing skills and concepts, helping children make transistions, and building a sense of community. Children, of course will tell you that singing is part of their daily activities because it is fun.

With more than 250 songs, rhymes, and chants, this book is a fun way to enrich toddlers'  language experiences. By incorporating songs, chants, and rhymes into the classroom, teachers provide opportunities for children to develop every aspect of reading readiness and literacy.

While the selections themselves are a great way to enhance the development of literacy skills, the follow-up suggestions for story time, outdoor play, music and movement, and literacy extension activities will be a sure-fire hit with this age group.

Each selection is accompanied by:

Related rhymes, songs, and chants.
Follow-up language enrichment activities, including ideas for developing oral language and phonological awareness.
Learning centre ideas
Outdoor play and/or music and movement activities
Story time suggestions
