Today we have Nancy joining us, she helps children to remember different concepts through fun, upbeat, catchy music and rhymes.
Hello, I am Nancy an Early Childhood Educator (B.A., E.C.E.), and studied music with the Royal Conservatory of Canada.
After teaching Preschool and Kindergarten for almost 10 years, I found that music was one of the most effective memory tools when teaching young children anything.
Whether it was tidying up or learning the letters of the Alphabet (who doesn't sing the alphabet when alphabetizing?) so I started writing my own songs.
One of the first songs I wrote was called "Planets, Planets", to help children remember the names and order of the planets from the sun outwards. It stuck immediately, and I was inspired to continue writing music that serves as a memory device.
I also branched out and wrote songs to support self-esteem which can be found on 'I Know I'll Grow' and 'Wonderful You.
I have 3 albums on iTunes of original, educational music:
Today I would like to share with you three of my songs that share an Earth/ Geography" theme.
Planets, Planets - Album: I Know I Will Grow:
The 7 Continents and 5 Oceans - Album: The Seasons:
The Canada Song - Album: Wonderful You:
I have more in the works for this year. I travel all over Toronto, Ontario, doing concerts, music classes and events. Its also great to see people enjoying my songs through my YouTube channel.
You can also find Nancy on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and of course iTunes.
