My Hands and Fingers
'Songs and activities with a focus on hands, how they look, move and what they can do.'
From the Bounce and Sing Curriculum for 1-3 year-old children. Part 6 in the series - Bouncing on the Bed.
Musical Child is a publisher of music education resources to stimulate early learning through music. We provide all you need to teach music to toddlers and preschoolers. Why? Because researchers have proven that 'every child is a musical child' and if you don’t engage them after they turn one they might lose their natural musicality.
Bounce and Sing with 200 songs is a complete curriculum for children aged 1-3. Sing and Play with 170 songs is a complete curriculum for children aged 3-5 or even older.
The best way to teach music to young children is through activities such as playing small instruments, finger plays, bounces, tickles and hand games, mimicry and movement, dance, drama and games. Resources available from our website include full descriptions of proven activities. In addition we provide a rationale and learning outcomes in language development. We also provide lyric charts for screen or wall.
Our songs and activities are used by teachers, childcare professionals and parents who understand that they are their child's first and most important teacher.
One teacher writes: "Let me start off with thanking you – your Musical Child series has been IMMENSELY helpful in my starting up a music programme for nursery schools here in Dubai. I was thrown in the deep end with a high school teaching background and suddenly having to create a constructive music lesson for preschoolers. I have purchased just about the entire Musical Child series and I find it to be an AMAZING teaching resource. I have also just come across your blog and will be spending the next couple of days reading through it."
