Beat it!

Some people just seem to have the beat in their body - these are the ones that can clap in time at a concert, dance gracefully and always tap their toes or click their fingers along to a tune.How can you help your child develop a strong sense of beat?

Echo songs, ( also called “call and response” songs, since one person “calls” each line and others respond ) are the perfect accompaniment to a whole range of occasions and locations. They are wonderful for driving in the car, singing in the bathtub, snuggling up at bedtime, walking along a quiet street, hiking through the bush, at family gatherings.... the list of possibilities is long.
