I hope you’re keeping safe and healthy.
After the wonderful feedback I’ve had after the recent peekaboo songs, I’ve decided to post another one today. Again this video is aimed at all children from about four months upwards and you’ll need a scarf for the second song. Older children might want to take turns in hiding family members or hiding their favourite cuddly toy.
Day 12 – Welcome, Little Baby Fast Asleep and Goodbye Everyone
I will be posting the next video on Monday. In the meantime, I’d be delighted if you’d revisit the previous videos. At this early age, children derive the greatest pleasure and musical benefit when they revisit familiar songs. Also ‘singing games are important not only from the point of view of developing musical skills, but also as an excellent vehicle for the complex educational process’ (Katalin Forrai, Music In The Preschool, 1988, p.36). If you’re curious about who I am and the philosophy behind my teaching, please check out my ‘Meet Janey’ and ‘About Kodály’ pages.
Please keep your videos, photos and comments coming as they brighten up my days.
Keep safe and have a good weekend.
