wee sing note purpleParent Tip: The special bond created by singing together Song: Choose any song that you as a parent feel confident in singing without the aid of a CD or cassette
• CDs/cassettes should be used as a way to learn the songs well enough to feel confident in singing them alone. They are also useful for game-type songs that are longer and harder for a parent to take the time to learn well enough to do alone (e.g. cumulative songs, circle games and dances).
• Many busy parents don’t feel like singing all the time, or don’t have the confidence in their singing ability. To be able to use a CD or cassette in the car or at other “needed” times is a great convenience.
• The benefits of teaching a song by yourself and singing it along with your child are many:
    1. You can sing at a tempo easier for young children to sing along.
    2. You can stop at any time and repeat phrases or actions.
    3. The children’s attention is focused on you.
    4. The spirit created by singing together is special.

• Remember that children aren’t focused on how good or bad your voice may be; they are more interested in sharing a fun time with you.
