Singing is a fun and important way to support your child’s early literacy development. When singing, each syllable in a word gets emphasized with a different note and rhythmic value, and as a result children can discriminate the individual sounds in words with greater accuracy. This ability will help them when it comes time for them to segment words into individual sounds and associate the sounds with letters.
