Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays in English and Spanish, Zero to Three


Singings songs to and with your child not only creates a playful, positive environment, it also teaches children important vocabulary and skills such as rhyming, rhythm, vocal pitch, and how to change the pace of their speech (fast, slow). In addition to these things, parents can use songs to help their child transition to new activities or to a new location!

In their resource “Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays in English and Spanish”, Zero to Three highlights several songs from Zero to Three Cornerstone Learning and Development Network member, Project Family. Project Family provides services across Arlington County, Virginia for low-income, predominantly Latino families with young children.
