I Can Do It
The songs in the CD, I Can Do It, were developed to teach children key skills such as confidence, problem solving and and optimism. When a child has confidence they are more likely to exhibit initiative, thinking and acting independently to meet their own needs. Confidence allows children to engage in the important acts of asking questions, making and carrying out plans, problem solving, using creativity and meeting new people and tasks with optimism. These songs will help children learn to: -Do things for himself -Keep trying when unsuccessful (act persistent) -Ask other children to play -Try or ask to try new things or activities -Start or organize play with other children -Participate actively in make-believe play -Try different ways to solve a problem -Focus his/her attention or concentrate on a task or activity -Choose to do a task that was challenging -Say positive things about the future (act optimistic) -Make decisions for himself/herself Growing Sound develops music and other products that translate key findings from recent child development research into practical and entertaining products for teachers, parents, and children. Founded in 2007 as a new venture of Children, Inc., our products stimulate social and emotional development in a way that is fun for young children. While many products focus on managing children's problem behaviors, Growing Sound is a proactive, strength-based approach to helping children discover the goodness in their lives and in themselves. As genuine breakthroughs in child development research increase there is a widening gap between what researchers know and what many parents and teachers practice. Parents and teachers want to optimize their child's development but they lack the time and expertise to digest the growing volume of research. Growing Sound answers this need by providing a line of products that distills the research into practical and fun activities for home and school. Growing Sounds' creative productions are led by David Kisor. David is an accomplished singer, songwriter, composer, performer and teacher. David uses his many amazing talents to magically translate research into fun, exciting musical productions. David regularly performs across the country (and internationally) as well as leads trainings for parents/teachers on the power of learning through music. Children love our products because they are fun. Parents and educators love our products because they help teach children key skills like persistence, initiative and self-control. Growing Sound is committed to putting our products into the hands of as many motivated teachers and parents as possible and to make children here and around the world ready for school and ready for life.
