If you are wondering how to talk to your children and yelling is just not working. Well try singing there’s a lot of evidence to back this up. Have a look at the blogs on this page and see what the experts say. It’s amazing. This term I’m working with children who have a different way of thinking to most children, some say they are disabled I’m of the opinion that there are other way of thinking and being. We just have to get on the same page as these children to teach them. MUSIC IS A KEY to this. MUSIC gets to the areas of the brain that normal speech won’t reach. “Sing – an old nursery rhyme with new words – “It’s time to get your shoes on, time to get your shoes on, time to get your shoes on we’re going out”. See the results. It’s immediate. That’s why early years educators should sing their way through the day and the very best ones do. IT WORKS. If you would like to do a seminar with me I am doing two by the end of this year. One that unpacks the science and gives you immediate skills to work with, the other is UKULELE adventures and gives to the skills to play a ukulele in the early years setting. Both are great fun and will be in NOVEMBER. Just in time to sing Christmas carols with the kids. Xx Fi
