After Our Time class this week, some of the mums were discussing the “Putting Away” song we use in Kindermusik and how they use it at home and when they are out. Almost by magic, instruments/toys/games are put away (and without a fuss)! Isn’t it wonderful how children respond so readily to musical cues – well before they are able to speak and sometimes even before they respond to spoken cues. Where have you used the “Putting Away” song? Do you have any other musical cues that help your day run more smoothly? A special song for bath-time or a favourite song to sing just before bed?
