Today I welcome Christine Gora of Kids Music Toys with a guest post about the importance of children learning to listen. Making children aware of sound and prompting them to listen for specific things can play a pivotal part in their aural development. Simple music making can facilitate listening and the awareness of the differences between sounds. Baby musical toys and children’s instruments have a key role to play in providing the interest and stimulation for encouraging music making and its subsequent language development.
Christie Burnett is an early childhood teacher, presenter, writer and the editor of Childhood 101. When I first clicked I thought it was going to be about us as early childhood professionals listening to children.
I am a huge fan of egg shakers, twist drums, the fish guiro, the rhythm sticks, the plan toys oval xylophone, the voila music box hippo {can you say CUTE!} and I think I will stop now.
Zoe is still adamant that she wants to learn the tambourine as an instrument at school next year – though I secretly know she'll get to play one sooner than that! I would enhance all of this with the marching drum, a triangle, and a fish guiro, and spend any loose change on scarves. Oh no question about it – I have had my eye on the Plan toys Musical Band Drumkit for quite some time. Alternately, the scarves would be popular, as they all dance madly as soon as any music starts! I would get a good selection of instruments for my little one: a drum, some bells, a triangle, maracas and a tambourine. I have my eye on some triangles, sea egg shakers, twist drums, wooden tambourines and kingdowm bell sticks. I would get a drum (I like the voila ones), wooden maracas, a wood block (love the sound they make), the star-shaped tamborine, a wooden recorder, and the set of castanets. I would love the guitar for my two, from a really young age they have both loved to strum their Pop's guitar.
Where to start so much choice and so many instruments that would be great additions for my home daycare.
I’ve tried my hand at singing, piano, guitar and even the harmonica, all resulting in a white flag of defeat after a few weeks of never getting it right. It’s smaller than a guitar, only has four strings, and allows you to play songs with your own style to it. In all honesty, I got a serious confidence boost from being able to learn something so quickly–and finally being able to make music after all these years!
You Are My Sunshine is the first song I learned, and was incredibly easy with only three chords.
After getting the hang of different strumming patterns, I began to learn songs like You and I by Ingrid Michaelson, and even Drops of Jupiter by Train. All of us at the Lala are avid supporters of spontaneity and trying new things, so give it a try and send us your videos! Her heart belongs to: Dove dark chocolate, high fashion, heart-wrenching love stories, and New York City. Take her away to: The gardens of Parisian Versailles to experience the arts of architecture, fashion and romance all in one. If you want your child to listen to what you say make sure you develop good listening habits yourself. When you see your child doing something positive or accomplishing something new, notice the good action and praise your child. Each 4C Play & Learn group provides plenty of time for adult and child to play together and for children to practice friendship skills with other children.


Funding for 4C Play & Learn is provided primarily by the Welborn Baptist Foundation, Inc. Musical development is very much akin to linguistic development in that both are dependent on listening and aural skills. There are the contrasting sounds of bells and castanets, drums and shakers, xylophones and glockenspiels. TV, DVD and such visual elements play no role, just the simple aspect of listening and responding. More importantly, she is a Mum who believes wholeheartedly in the value of children learning through play, the importance of quality early education, and the togetherness of family.

She responds to any music, even when walking past a shop that's playing something, up go the arms and she starts jigging.
She has a bunch of bells and shakers which she loves, both shaking them while dancing herself, or, if she can convince me, dancing in my arms while shaking away and still somehow nursing her favourite doll! Then her second birthday party would feature a marching band starring herself and all her friends, playing Happy Birthday, toddler style. I participate with enthusiasm so that the kids know that even when completely devoid of natural talent, you can still have fun singing, dancing and generally mucking about with loud noises, soft noises, harmonies…I would definitely get a clarinet, a guiro, a tambourine and some scarves for each child -sounds like a party to me! We all hear about those people who magically pick up a guitar or sit down at a piano and teach themselves to be the next YouTube sensation pop star. These three songs can all use the same strumming pattern (down, down, up, up, down, up), so they were very easy to catch on to, and you can also look up different YouTube tutorials to learn different versions of songs. Leading the way in empowering media, the Lala stands behind a positive media mission dedicated to informing and inspiring college women from campuses across the world.
When your child talks to you about something important to him, stop your work, make eye-contact with him, listen to his argument and acknowledge his concern. Praising sincerely for good reasons can motivate children to listen and follow instructions from parents.
Making up a story, working a puppet, skipping rope or playing grocer are all opportunities for children to discover new realities, to experiment with strategies and to learn to apply rules. While all of this visual entertainment may have its place and provide parents with some welcome “time-out” relief we have to understand the development of children and the development of their linguistic skills to understand the true effect of the visual and the outcome for our children. Or at least playing a joyful cacophony in a crazy procession around the lounge room, leading up to the unveiling of Grannie's birthday cake. So colourful (which of course is visual) and I'm sure the sounds it makes will be vibrant too. You can play a song using only three chords as long as you’re brave enough to sing along with it, or you can get fancy with picking strings and learning the more complex chords. The Makala brand Uke is a great beginner’s piece, and is probably one of the best budget-wise. A common question most parents ask themselves is “will kids ever listen?” If your child doesn’t seem to listen to you, and explaining and disciplining have not worked to resolve the issue, try these four parenting techniques and see how things can change dramatically in the home environment. Whether you agree or disagree to your child’s comments, pay attention to what he has to say and let him know that his concerns are heard, understood and considered.
This is not about indulging your child but about building a healthy parent-child relationship and recognizing children’s efforts for good behavior.
And they would make a great prezzy to add to a little outfit for a newborn or even 1 st or 2 ms birthday. Our home needs a new tambourine after a foot recently when through the one we got for Christmas.
Easy to play, simply press the electronic sound button to identify the sound and corresponding picture card.


There are times that we might lose our tempers and say things that we shouldn’t say and do things that we shouldn’t do. Each child is encouraged to take home a free book each week to build their personal library and caregivers receive activities and materials to extend the fun and learning at home. For example, when your child stacks wooden blocks to build a house, he or she is encouraged to explain the process and strategies used and thus, to recognize and put names to what is being learned. Just your hands on contribution and the interaction with your child, always asking questions and seeking a response. If you want your child not to scream, make sure you’re not caught doing the exact same thing yourself.
In the same way, through various stimulating situations, your child will develop the attitudes required for cooperation, taking responsibility and developing creativity.
Your goal should be to build a positive image of a responsible parent for your child; someone whom your child can trust and look up to. It is important to let your child know that you made a mistake, you’re sorry about what happened and you’re planning to make things right. This approach will enable your child to expand his or her experiences and gradually prepare him or her for entering elementary school. If the predominant stimuli is visual then some children may have trouble developing language skills, simply because they have been diverted from the aural at a stage that this is critically important. The key is to provide the appropriate aural stimuli that can support language development at the time that this is crucial. Admitting and acknowledging your mistakes, encourages your child to do the same and strengthens the bond between parents and children. We urge you to read it carefully and to remember that school is there to support your child and to provide him or her with everything necesary to succeed.
In this 4 page leaflet it looks at what we know and then lists practical suggestions for parents to help their child adapt to the school environment.
Play and playfulness help to make us the most complex and successful primates on the planet.
The Role of Play in the Overly-Academic Classroom A video from the Gesell Institute which looks at the impact banishing play from kindergarten classrooms has on the nation's youth. Although it addresses the US situation, play-based learning in kindergarten is also under assault here. Worried parents might think their preschool age child should come home with worksheets, not mixed-media art work. This article describes how preschool teachers encourage pre-literacy and math skills in all kinds of creative ways and with guided interactions. The explosive growth of baby learning products has sent parents scrambling to ensure their baby is as bright as bright can be. In this series, IDEAS producer Mary O’Connell explores what some are calling a brave new age of infant determinism. In the second hour of The Hurried Infant, IDEAS producer Mary O’Connell sat down to discuss what some are calling the re-invention of childhood itself with two leading child advocates and researchers, neuroscientist Maryanne Wolfe and psychologist Kathy Hirsh-Pasek.
