Music has always been incorporated in children education and for all the good reasons. Parents and child expert have deemed music to play an essential role in children’s development. Exposing a child to music early on in life as much as possible is also recommended as music is proven to soothe babies with colic or sleep issues, as well as aid in child early learning and development.

Here are a few reasons why you should expose your children to music:

  1. It helps the baby relax and get better sleep
  2. Nursery rhymes and action songs aid in a child’s coordination and motor skills
  3. It facilitates words and vocabulary learning
  4. It improves a child’s social skills
  5. Tests show that having a child learn to play an instrument will also result to improve performance in Math
  6. Learning to play a music instrument or leaning to sing using aΒ sennheiser md421Β will contribute to a child’s feeling of accomplishment and self-worth
  7. It also allows for special bonding time with parents and other family members
  8. Learning new action songs is always a fun idea!

If you do not have thought of any fun ideas for your little one to enjoy this summer, you might as well consider enrolling them to a music class or getting them a musical instrument they can learn to play at home. I am sure they will find it a very interesting thing to do to pass the time.

kids in doodles: my new playschool

early learning, playschool, kids in doodles, pre-schooler

hello again playmates, time again for another round of kids in doodles + today am sharing my new playschool.

my old playschool closed down late last year so mum + i had to find me a new one. lucky enough, we found this one just across the resort where i enroll for swimming class during summer. mum said i really need to get used to going to school + doing all those school works in preparation for big school, where i’d be enrolled this coming school year.

we went to the playschool one day to have me assessed + my new teacher, cheenie, said that i am a fast learner + aced my assessment test. mum enrolled me right away + my class was scheduled the following week. we were to go for 2 hours during mondays/wednesday/friday.

early learning, playschool, kids in doodles, pre-schooler

my first day in my new playschool turned out well. i may be busy marveling at my new surrounding but did what i was told on most occasions. we traced {a lot of tracing} letters, identified the alphabet + numbers, we colored and told stories + my most favorite part of all, we played with this set of mega blocs. i made big robots + made believe they were transformers bumblebee + optimus prime!

i my not have cooperated on a number of occasions, but my teachers were clever enough to make me do my school exercises + unlike my former playschool, where we get to play a lot with my classmates miggy + don, which i missed a lot, we are more focused on doing school-related work + would just pause for a play break when I am being restless.

i am sure i will enjoy my time at my new playschool + i cannot wait to see their play area 2 doors down! πŸ™‚

okay Β it’s your turn to share your fun stories with us. do not forget to include one of our badges + link up. also, if there were a number of participants, i hope you’d visit them, too, to make our game more fun + enjoyable.Β 

have a very nice february everyone! ^_^

hello again playmates, how’s your weekend so far? am sure most of you are cooped up at home like me because of typhoon santi. but there is no need to feel sad or down just because we cannot play outside on a weekend, right? am sure you + your mum can think of several dozens of ways to enjoy indoors, just like joining this week’s kids in doodles, perhaps! πŸ˜‰

today am sharing all about the number doodles i made in playschool last thursday. counting is fun, but coloring with numbers is even more enjoyable. i colored numbers 2 to 5 + counted the objects that come with each activity page. kindly excuse my coloring skills, i was too excited to go out + play, instead, so i colored as fast as i can to finish my work! πŸ˜€

for numbers 4 + 5, apart from coloring + counting, i also got to paste these cute moons + people cut outs onto the page. of course, ate ricca had to help me put the glue onto the cut outs πŸ˜‰

i know i need more practice with my coloring skills, good thing mum has stashed a bunch of coloring books + activity pages at home so that i practice even on days when we have no classes, just like today! πŸ™‚

early learning, toddler, pre-schooler, milestones, playschool

it was my very first day at preschool two days ago + mum + i cannot wait to go. my classes starts at 9.30 in the morning so we really have to wake up really early and prepare. the playschool is located in the town proper, about 15 minutes away from our place.

my new playschool reminds me so much of activefun + i even thought it was a mini version when we first came here to inquire + enroll. there is a slide, lots of toys and my favorite, the swim ball! it is really a kid’s haven, if you ask me.

early learning, toddler, pre-schooler, milestones, playschool

it turned out, we also need to attend class + participate in the activities our teacher kai has planned for the day, but i have plans of my own + that is to just play all day! which i did! πŸ˜€

early learning, toddler, pre-schooler, milestones, playschool
