This week’s Miss Nina video is one of preschool kids favorite songs: 5 Little Ducks!
This song is simple and fun – while also being chock full of benefits for young children: fine motor skills development, subtraction, rhythm, rhyme and repetition for speech development, empathy and emotion identification.. and of course, a lovely calming melody.
Need more number songs with a summer time feel? Here’s more!
5 Green & Speckled Frogs:
5 Little Monkeys Swinging from a Tree:
And of course – there’s our Very Hungry Caterpillar Counting Song:
The first three videos all focus similarly on subtraction – starting with the number five and taking away one – in a variety of ways! And then the VHC song is focuses in on addition – more and more and the caterpillar getting bigger and bigger.
Adding music and movement to learning is my passion. It provides a way for the little ones to EXPERIENCE what they are learning – while developing physical skills and brain function – and therefore they are more likely to RETAIN what they are learning.
Meanwhile – they are just having a whole lot fun. <3
Enjoy! I’ll see you next Tuesday with a new video and post.
