In the past, I’ve sung songs like ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes‘ to Veronika mostly for fun. But now that she’s saying her first words (like “cat“!), songs like these are great to learn vocabulary. Because babies love to mimic, see if your little one will follow along and pat parts of his or her body as you sing.
We have a fun interactive learning desk with pictures of the body; it was great to sing the song at the desk and point to the corresponding pictures.
I also pointed out each word on her corresponding body part. Knees and toes!
I like to use my own face when pointing out eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. Hopefully she will reach out and start touching features back, soon.
Finish the song with a big round of applause!
