As seen on PBS Stations across the country, the Music with Miss Merry (formerly Monkey Monkey music) children's music video series engages young children in a way that is both joyous and developmentally appropriate. Not only is this collection artful, interesting, and highly imaginative, it is perfect for developing both gross and fine motor skills, language acquisition, and can be used as a supplementary tool to meet early learning standards in conjunction with a formal preschool curriculum.
Children learn about directions as two little girls sing about all the various ways things move through this catchy hip-hop inspired song. Children observe the ways windshield wipers move, the way subway doors open and close, and how cars move in opposite directions on a highway.
Children are sure to "turn their bodies around" as they enter a 1950s diner "Happy Days"-inspired world. Children move from "side to side," "take two steps" back and follow other moves as they dance, sing and play in a 1950s play space.
Children wave and sing goodbye as they recall the movement activities they performed that day. Children watching will clap along and dance with the children on screen in this creative video about saying goodbye.
