Make today a singing day. Instead of talking, try singing to your child about what you’re doing. Make up new words to a familiar tune or create your own! It might feel silly at first, but they love to hear the sound of your voice singing. Respond to any sounds they make.

See what your child is learning

When we sing, we slow down our speech and stretch out sounds, pronouncing them more clearly. Singing not only engages your child’s attention, it helps them hear the sounds of words more clearly. This is how they learn to speak and communicate with you!
