Young children are able to respond to rhythm and tone before they understand language. Fun, interactive songs such as This is the Way We… will help your baby develop language comprehension as she learns to associate key words with people, objects and events in her daily life.
Step 1: Sit your baby on your lap or the floor, if she is able to sit well on her own. Tell her that you are going to sing a fun song and you would like for her to help!
Step 2: Use the song This is the Way We… to sing and introduce different actions. Some examples are:
This is the way we clap our hands, clap our hands, clap our hands. This is the way we clap our hands. And now we stop!
This is the way we touch our nose, touch our nose, touch our nose. This is the way we touch our nose. And now we stop!
