Months of the year - DVD or CD?

Postby Hifive » Fri Feb 26, 2010 9:53 am

Hi everyone

I would like to teach my preschool boy on the months of the year. Is there a CD or DVD that I can buy so that I can teach him all the months through a song?

Thanks in advance!

Why is there a need to buy a CD or DVD when you can sing it yourself? Almost all (if not all) kids who attend CCC or enrichment will learn the song.

I remember that the tune is a well-known children's song/nursery rhyme and you just replace the original lyrics with the months of the year. Unfortunately, I can't remember the tune now. Can someone help? :?

My boy learnt the days of the week and months of the year through Leapfrog's Back to School DVD.

if you don't mind the internet, there is a lot of resource on Youtube - you just need to view them first to make sure that it is really child safe.
found this here, but i have not viewed it in full yet :wink:
