Singing songs with your child is not only fun but it helps develop the basic fundamental skills of language. When singing we are learning different sounds, identifying word meanings, learning how to label, promoting eye contact, increasing turn taking skills, using gestures, increasing concentration and learning about our voices through vocal play. This song is called, “Down By The Bay.” It is silly and has so much to talk about. Attached is a word list to help highlight key words that your child can generalize into their daily activities. Have fun!
