Sometimes, life can get really busy. Don’t you agree? As much as we like our kids to do stuff like arts and crafts, we can’t help but give the screen to them. That is of course, when it is only necessary. We should limit our screen time with our toddlers. However, why not maximize the screen time by letting them watch these best youtube channel for kids?
Best Youtube Channel for Kids
I will be listing my top 4 best youtube channel for kids that will help them in learning basic skills. Plus, they will be having fun listening and singing along at the same time.
I discovered Mr. Matt early in my years as a Speech Therapist when I was finding songs that sing about daily activities. It turns out that he had so much songs about learning concepts! He had songs about rooms of the house, opposites, action words, and such. Although I can’t imagine myself making up kids songs like Matt and acting them out, he is one helpful guy. Thank you Mr. Matt!
This channel is one of my super favorites! They’re super catchy, super nice graphics and overall just super. Some of their songs are so educational and useful in speech therapy. They really know how to make catchy tunes that my students love. Most of my kids would request to sing a song from this channel before we start our lesson. You can find so many useful songs here such as the “Bath song” or “Do you like Broccoli ice cream” (for yes and no questions).
Little Baby Bum was recommended by a parent as her child enjoys watching the songs on this channel. They have really cute child-friendly graphics and very educational topics. Some of them might be more just for fun, so you just have to sift through. Make sure that the songs also say the words clearly. They also have some really good songs such as this one about getting dressed.
This channel has also been helpful in helping my students learn how to describe objects. For example, this watermelon and fruits song. This song teaches about the various fruits and their shapes and colors. They learn, but the best part of it is that they’re getting it faster since the songs are catchy!
Best Youtube Channel for Kids: Tips to Maximize Learning
In order to maximize learning, don’t forget to…
- Sing the song with your child along with the video – to increase interaction
- Describe what is happening in the video in idle moments – “Look! The monkey is wearing his shirt!”
- Make up gestures or follow gestures being done by the characters – improves motor skills and planning
If Youtube is not accessible or you would want the classic versions of the nursery rhymes, here is something I recommend:
Amazon Digital Offers this whole set of nursery rhyme classics for only 5.99. This is a good deal for parents who like to sing the songs with their children with accompaniment or on days where you can’t Youtube, or you’re on a long trip with your child.
