The Magic of Music
We love listening to music any time of the day. With the TV off and the computer games put away, we turn on the music for something different to do. My kids can dance their little hearts out to some good tunes. Even I get in on the dancing fun, it can be quite a workout!
Here are some of the Children's Music CDs we've been listening to:
Dr. Jean: I used her all the time when I taught Kindergarten. She has fun with children's music. She is able to teach many pre-school concepts in her songs, as well as silly songs too.
Raffi: He has this great inviting and playful voice. He sings lots of old goodies, but also brings in some of his own too. I love "Down on Grandpa's Farm" and "Tingalayo".
Disney's Greatest: This is a great collection of songs from Disney Movies. We are able to sing along to all the songs from our favorite movies. My daughter likes to dress up in her princess dress, dancing to "Someday My Prince Will Come".
iTunes: I love to put together songs from itunes and make my own mix for the kids. I have been meaning to do a mix of all the T.V. kids show tunes, like Dora, Blues Clues, Wiggles. All in a little mix CD. (iTunes gift cards are the best gift to give!)
Classical: We even turn on our radio to the Classical Music channel and listen to Beethoven and Mozart. The Flight of the Bubble Bees is a great song to get your heart pumping. Dancing can be great exercise.
