About the event

Singing & Literacy: Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays in the Early Years

Online Tuesday, July 16, 2024 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come ready to sing and to share your favourite and unique songs, rhymes and fingerplays! Signing, music, 

rhymes and fingerplays help children develop listening skills and hear the rhythms and rhymes of language.

 Singing is a great literacy practice that will improve and increase the acquisition of skills necessary for learning to read later on. 

It also encourages and intrigues children, helping them remember longer because it activates different parts of the

 brain than regular spoken language. 

They get an understanding of the smaller sounds in words because singing slows down language and often, 

songs have different notes for each syllable.

Living Inquiries:

  • Well-being and belonging.
  • Communication and Literacies.
  • Identities, Social Responsibility and Diversity.


  • Joy in relationships with people, place, materials and ideas.
  • Emotions, thoughts, and views
  • Multiple modes of communication.
  • Social responsibility and justice.
  • Time for engagement.
