Here's a parenting hack I stumbled upon 100% by accident!
My family spends A LOT of time listening to music in the car and I realized our 6 year-old, Jackson, was starting to pick up on more and more of the lyrics.
So, a couple of weeks back I decided to print out the lyrics, staple them together and turn them into a little book... and HE LOVED IT!
It's helping him to recognize words that would be tough to sound out on their own, but he's also making plenty of discoveries about the words he's hearing in songs:
On our way to his first day of 1st grade this morning, he requested a lyrics book for one of his other favorite songs: "Heat Waves" by Glass Animals.
ON IT, BUD!
