Hello! I hope you and your nearest and dearest are well.
The weather forecast suggests that today’s song may be appropriate over the next couple of days. The video is aimed at walking children but if you have younger children, you may want to use it as a tickle song, tickling on the word ‘splash!’
Day 31 – Welcome, Rain Is Falling Down and Goodbye Everyone
I will be posting the next video on Monday. In the meantime, please revisit the previous videos. In the early years, children derive the greatest pleasure and musical benefit when they revisit familiar songs. Repetition is vital to develop the skills needed to participate in a song or chant and its actions and also helps them acquire the concept and joy of anticipation. 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, keep singing and have a fun weekend.
