This is a song that I wrote to address mindfulness with the preschoolers I work with and it quickly turned into a tool that we use everyday at home! The theme "listen" is a pattern of two notes falling downward...this helps to grab the attention of your littles and prompts them to actual repeat the same pattern back! Singing the instructions also helps to substitute the need to yell at your kids to pay attention. Studies show that whispering and singing actually grab their attention more than if you raise your voice...so go ahead, give it a try!
