Come With Me and Swim!

Oh, the freedom of floating and splashing in the water! Whether at the beach, pool or lake, swimming is a wonderful way to play. Even pretending to swim in the bathtub can be fun for you and your child. Here is a brand new song that uses changes in musical time to create the feeling of taking a swim. Enjoy!

 

Come With Me and Swim…E.K. Schwartz 2017

Come with me and swim. Come hold hands and jump right in.

Come with me and swim. Come hold hands and jump right in.

The water is cool, the weather is fine. So take a deep breath, it’s almost time.

Bend your knees. Curl your toes. Take a breath. Hold your nose.

Ready. Set. Go! OH!!

 

I WANT!!

All kids have them at one time or another and most parents fear them…temper tantrums.  As hard as they can be to live through, it’s important to know that these outbursts are fairly typical as the child develops.  While it seems natural to try and figure out why your child is having a meltdown, a better approach is to help the child learn how to communicate and cope. Here’s a new song that gives you and your child words and ways for those moments of mayhem!

 

“I Want!!”

E.K. Schwartz MA, LCAT, MT-BC 2017

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

So come with me and play the drum.

We’ll beat together and have some fun.

And when the song is done….

I’m so glad I played with you.

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

You play with me, I play with you.

We play together and that’s what we do.

And when the song is through…

I’m so glad I played with you.

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

I want. I want. I want to play with you.

 

I’m So Glad to Be Me!

Don’t you wish you could bottle the unrestrained joy of infants and toddlers when they are happy and excited? One way young children show enthusiasm is through clapping. Get ready to sing, clap and dance along with this happy new song celebrating those small moments of pleasure.

I’m So Glad to Be Me

E.K. Schwartz 2016

I’m going to clap with my hands

I’m going to dance with my knees

I’m going to sing out loud ‘I’m glad to be me!’

I’m going to clap with my hands

I’m going to dance with my knees

I’m going to sing out loud ‘I’m so glad to be me!’

Here’s my head

And here’s my toes

I know how to think

And I know where to go

Here’s my eyes, I know how to look

I can jump and play and read a book.

I’m going to clap with my hands

I’m going to dance with my knees

I’m going to sing out loud ‘I’m glad to be me!’

I’m going to clap with my hands

I’m going to dance with my knees

I’m going to sing out loud ‘I’m so glad to be me!’

Will You Help Me Cook?

For almost every holiday, we have special foods connected with that holiday.  When we have traditions in our family connected with food, it is really important to bring young children into the kitchen early to learn about those traditions. Give them a small chore, and help them to learn about their family and their culture with the new song about food. Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!

Will You Help Me Cook?

E.K. Schwartz 2015

Pumpkin pie; put it in the oven.

Baked potatoes;  I’ll eat ‘em by the dozen.

Cook me up some carrots and peas,

A little bit of turkey and some gravy, please.

Will you help me cook? Yes! Yes!

Come and take a look. Yes! Yes!

In the recipe book. Yes! Yes!

So cook me up some carrots and peas,

A little bit of turkey and some gravy, please.

 

Enjoy the music!
