Action Songs Children Love Volume 2


 Action Songs Children Love Volume 2 by Denis Gagne

Why sing action songs? Action songs are a fun, engaging musical activity.  Children who may not participate in some musical activities are readily engaged in singing and playing action songs.  They love the challenge of remembering the actions while singing.

The actions aid some children in remembering the lyrics, enhance their language development and help children develop patterning and sequencing abilities.  They also help them develop hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity.  Finger games will help to develop the fine muscle coordination needed later in music classes to play the recorder, barred instruments, ukelele, guitar, or piano.
