Ready to Read: Singing Resources

How does singing help children learn to read?

  • Singing helps children learn new words.

  • Singing slows down language so children can hear the different sounds in words and learn about syllables.

  • Singing together is a fun bonding experience with your child — whether you're a good singer or not!

  • Singing develops listening and memory skills and makes repetition easier for young children — it's easier to remember a short song than a short story.
