Sing Move and Learn
Toddlers participate enthusiastically in songs that have lots of hand and body motions. "The Wheels on the Bus" is a wonderful song to engage toddlers with. They like to act out the motions of the whipers on the bus window and the way "the baby on the bus goes wah, wah, wah!"Many time a s toddler who isn't very verbal in child care will feel more comfortable joining in songs. The hand motions and the melody of songs like "The Eentsy Weentsy Spider" just carry the toddler along. Sometimes toddlers even sing aloud to accompany their own actions and describe what they're doing.
