A B C! It's easy as, 1 2 3!
Everyone loves this classic-meets-educational karaoke song by the Jackson 5, but did you know that karaoke can help improve your child’s cognitive development? Not only is karaoke a great way for kids to let off extra energy and express emotion, karaoke is also a helpful tool in teaching your child to read.
Learning to read is often a daunting task for kids, especially for those who need extra help when it comes to pronunciation. Karaoke is ideal for visual learners, who learn by seeing and doing. This makes karaoke the perfect tool for parents seeking to incorporate new activities into your child’s reading routine.
Start off by practicing singing along with your child to one of his or her’s favorite songs — nothing too vocally challenging. After some practice, get out your Singing Machine and let them sing the song without the backing vocals of the musical artist, encouraging them to read and follow the words on the screen.
Seeing the already familiar words light up and scroll with the music will help improve your child’s ability to recognize words. Eventually, you will be able to play only the music backtrack and let your kids do the singing without any help from the artist.
Your child will take center stage, and feel more confident than ever, as they learn to read and sing simultaneously. Karaoke is also great for improving a child’s self esteem and confidence. Considering that public speaking is regarded as one of the highest ranking fears in adults, teaching your child to be fearless when it comes to taking the stage is a great head start! It’s important to remember that one need not be an amazing vocalist to have a blast with karaoke! Karaoke is all about having fun and encouraging one and another.
