Ava may only be two, but she loves YouTube. At her age, I barely knew how use my Teddy Bear Ruxpin (all the 80’s babies know what I’m talking about)! I have no problem letting Ava use YouTube as long as it is in moderation and to watch education or fun sing-along. In addition to what I teach, I think songs get her growing brain moving faster. Here is a list of her favorite songs:
1. Five Little Monkey
In the last week, this has become Ava’s favorite video. She runs around the house shouting, “No Monkeys Jumping on Bed”. I couldn’t believe she was saying it the first time I heard her. It has really motivated her to use fuller sentences.
2. ABC Phonics Song
We both love this video. It’s a phonics song with a picture for each letter. It is designed to help children learn the sounds of the letters in the English alphabet. Ava loves to repeat the word of each letter.
3. Sesame Street: Letter Y Song
This is a short, but cute song about the letter Y. It is from the 42nd season of Sesame Street which is Ava’s favorite TV show. I think she loves this video because the beat of the song is so catchy.
4. The Duck Song
This song is also a catchy song, but can get somewhat annoying if repeated more than once. Ava loves singing the chorus, “Waddle, Waddle, Waddle,” together. There is more than one version so be sure to check out the others.
5. Sesame Street: Bruno Mars: Don’t Give Up.
Ava loves celebrity Sesame Street songs. This one by Bruno Mars is her favorite. I love the message and Ava definitely gets it. She sings, “try, try” all around the house.
