One of the first home day cares my oldest attended, they did circle time everyday. I really noticed the power of daily circle time, with her speech and learning. I loved how she would come home each day singing songs and doing animations. It was like charades, because at first I had no idea what song she was attempting to sing or what the heck she was attempting to do with her hands.
It’s so cute to see the little ones faces light up when you start singing a song they know. Music makes the heart sing and their little brains grow.
My problem is, or was that once I sat down with the kids to do my own circle time, I’d forget all the songs I know. So I’ve made an evergreen nursery rhyme playlist. You can play it one song at a time or just let the whole thing run. If you have any favorite songs and or videos you’d like to recommend, I’d love to see them in the comments below.
