In our new Fall podcast, we meet James and his baby brother Jack again. You may remember them from another podcast where James is so excited when he learns he is going to be a big brother, then so disappointed when baby Jack can’t do anything. In the story today Jack does lots of things.
I sing a song called “Things I can Do” and you get to do all those things with me. The song uses a different letter for each verse. For example the first verse has things I can do beginning with P. I sing “I can pedal,” “I can paint,” “I can paddle,” and “I can play.” I also include the letters S, T and D. I’m sure you can think of lots of ideas for the song.
Anneliese sings the second song called “Walking, Walking, Walking,” which has lots of actions you can join in with. And of course the song lends itself to allowing you to come up with some different actions. If you have listened to several podcasts, you will know I often have action songs included. A new action, in both songs, is keeping still. This is quite hard for young children to do, but gets better with practice (just keep singing the songs!) as children learn to control their bodies.
This is definitely an action-packed podcast. Enjoy!
