Rickety Rocking Horse

Baby SOH and I have really enjoyed playgroup, and I have often led the music for the group.

It’s one of my most enjoyable music experiences.

This week I took my big bag of teddybears.  Teddies are great fun at music, and often the favourite is the one that’s a little bit different, such as the orange one, or the little one. 

We bounced our bears on our knee, just like Mums bounce their babies. 

Rickety rickety rocking horse, over the fields we go.

Rickety rickety rocking horse, giddy up, giddy up, WHOA!  (get faster on the giddy ups)

This was a great follow up to the story we had just heard, Fast faster.  What a great way for young children to experience and talk about tempo.

Baby SOH had fun, and I did too.

About nannyjay

I am an early childhood music specialist, with a passion for music, music for singing, music for children, classical music, contemporary, good quality folk recordings, moving to music that comes from a feeling within. Having recently become a grandmother, the months are flying past too quickly!! I have decided that I would like to record the musical journey Baby SOH and I will take together. Music enhances my own life, and I have seen the contribution music makes to family lives, and children's lives from their youngest days. I am also interested in the contribution music makes to family relationships. I love to sing myself, and so the Kodaly philosophy of music education sits very well with me. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian music educator and composer, and believed that singing is the foundation for all music education. I will soon be attending the early childhood music seminar of the International Society of Music Educators in Beijing, China, which is very exciting. People from the world over meet to share the latest research in music for children 0 - 8 years. So the journey begins.
