Our current address isn't so rhythmic so I was delighted when I heard the "My Name and Address" song on our Wee Sing cd. Sung to the tune of "Rain Rain Go Away," children are encouraged to learn their full names and addresses as follows:
My name is Jane SmithAs we were practicing, in an effort to really drive the point home, I sang the song 5 times each time naming a different person in our family. All three kids seemed to be enjoying it. Elise likes it when anyone is singing anything. Wes likes what Jack likes and Jack seemed to be catching on a little bit. Or so I thought. As soon as I'd finished the 5th verse he piped up with "That's a silly song. Boys don't wear dresses."
This is my address
1234 Main Street
