This month we are focusing on repertoire used for Early Childhood settings, according to our Interviewee Kerry Devlin, MT-BC.
Some of the powerful resources for interventions that we discussed are Singable Books. These are books that illustrate songs, or books that can be sung to familiar tunes. And in place of our Song of the Week (SOTW), I have compiled a list (in no particular order) of popular singable books and attached a link to another site which elaborates on that particular book. This post is CHALK FULL of AWESOME RESOURCES! I made it simple and to the point so you can scroll through and explore at your leisure. I hope you all find this helpful and informative, as well as inspiring in your own clinical practice. And, as always, we are interested in your input! Let us know what we should add to this list, or what your favorite ways are to address literacy goals.
