My children love music, so I have used songs to help them learn skills.I taught them to spell by putting the spelling of their names to music. I also put our telephone number to music. -- Musically Inclined Parent


At all ages, putting something children need to learn to a song they can sing is a very effective memory tool. It's fun, too! You can make a jingle that repeats the information several times to a catchy tune the children know.
