Combining song with movement is an ideal way to engage learning and boost memory skills. We all remember at least one action song from our younger days; putting our left leg in and shaking it all about or pulling down on each of our ear lobes. Some action songs go even further than these simple body gestures by combining lyrics with sign language. While this means that deaf and partially hearing children can participate more easily with these kinds of music activities, all children will enjoy the lively nature of the songs.
