Bake, sing and play
We hope you are enjoying the holiday season! While you are baking cookies with your kids, you can sing some traditional English songs and rhymes. Rhythm and repetition in songs helps children learn new words faster.
“Pat-a-cake” is one of the oldest rhymes in the English language. In place of the letter “b” in the word “baby”, you can put the first letter of your child’s name.
“Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man, bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and roll it and mark it with a B, and put it in the oven for Baby and me.
Make it with chocolate, make it with cream, make it the prettiest you’ve ever seen.
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man, bake me a cake as fast as you can,
Have fun baking, singing and learning!
