The early literacy skill of phonological awareness means learning about sounds in words. Singing songs with your baby, such as “Old MacDonald” or “The More We Get Together,” is a great way to emphasize this skill because in songs each syllable may have a different note. Without thinking about it your child is hearing words being broken down into parts. The Library has a multitude of CDs with classic children’s songs… check one of these out!
