My kids love to listen to music when we drive in the car. I was growing a little weary of the same music selection we were listening to so I created a new playlist for us to jam along with and learn at the same time!
Music is a great way to build phonemic awareness with young children. And, it’s a great example of technology for kids. This playlist is filled with great preschool songs that would also appeal to toddlers and young elementary children.
Here are our favorite kids’songs that build literacy skills.
