Touched by a Song
Length: one keynote and one workshop
Songs touch us in many ways and using music as a tool for learning is indispensable for early childhood educators.

This dynamic keynote emphasizes seven of the major intelligences including music, linguistic, visual/spatial, kinesthetic, and intrapersonal.

Revisit how songs affect our emotions and create lifelong positive memories. Besides learning numbers, letters, beginning sounds, shapes, colors, patterns, opposites and rhyming, activities will develop a variety of important early childhood social, educational and musical skills.

Share in the learning of action songs, quiet songs, finger plays, lullabies and singing games from many cultures.

This is an exciting, interactive workshop where the participants use their hands, feet and voices. You will go back to the classroom with songs, chants, fingerplays, singing games and a renewed interest in music and the tools and techniques to give you confidence in teaching it.

Open a young child’s mind to the possibility of connecting to others by being "Touched by a Song."

"Hi Miss Jackie!! I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know how much I love your new CD!!! We are doing a kindergarten sing this year and we all love "What's a Friend For". I've had several kindergarten parents tell me how proud the children were to come home spelling friend. It is a wonderful song and those of us at Arcadia Valley Elementary Kindergarten (students AND teachers) thank you. "

Peas Porridge Cold, Peas Porridge Hot ~ Nursery Rhymes Can Teach a Lot!
Nursery rhymes play an important role in children’s lives.  For many children, nursery rhymes are the very first songs and stories that they learn. 
Nursery rhymes stimulate memory, improve language skills, develop appreciation for music, enrich vocabulary, develop phonemic awareness, encourage thinking skills…..and …..they are fun!

The rhyming words and singsong quality of nursery rhymes teach children important pre-reading skills.
This workshop will help teachers and parents learn how to teach children the connection between nursery rhymes and learning to read, and participants will leave the workshop with lots of ideas for wonderful activities to experience the joy of song and rhyme.
Did you know that you can incorporate other content areas into a simple nursery rhyme? Math, science, personal skills and much more.
Interesting information about  Mother Goose and the origin of many of the rhymes will be included plus a bibliography and handouts.
Bestselling author and literary consultant Mem Fox states in her book Reading Magic that "rhymers will be readers". Based on research by experts in literacy and child development, she claims that children who know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old will be among the best readers by the time they are eight years old.

"I wish you were my teacher every day!"

"Hi Miss Jackie,
I met you last Sat. at The San Francisco Library. I just wanted to personally thank you again for inspiring me! After listening to you speak, and looking at your website, I am excited about contributing to early childhood education through music. I am particularly interested in creating a program for children on the Autism spectrum and
incorporating sensory Integration techniques to help teach motor skills. You are my hero!!! I Hope you had a safe journey home."

Laughing and Singing Make Way for Good Reading
Long before children encounter formal reading instruction, they should have many opportunities to play with and fall in love with rhythm, rhyme, repetition and sequence. Songs, poems, rhymes, chants, and fingerplays are the perfect vehicles for these experiences.

Emerging research has shown that rhymes and songs are more than entertaining. It says that the critical window of opportunity for helping children develop both vocabulary and sound discrimination is between birth and age six.

All it takes is to unleash the power of these experiences is to have fun with songs, poems, rhymes, and fingerplays. Emphasis on three to six years.

"It was such a pleasure to have you visit our program and provide training to our team. They are still talking about you and your songs live on as they are being sung in every classroom and home we serve. You were rated very highly by our team and they want you back again!"

Your book was a real great support in my journey with my child Dhaani who is 15 months old.
Since her birth I play all the games mentioned in the series and the results are wondrous. At the age of 10 months she could show her pointer, jack(thumb), head. She could speak hi..bye..apple..and at age of 12 months she could imitate the voice of sheep, cow, crow, cuckoo, duck, cock,and many more."
