Boogie Mites Resources available from I CAN
Do you want to develop your skills in using music and songs when working with children? Do you want to deliver music making sessions for parents but not sure where to start? Do you already offer sessions for parents but want to develop your confidence and get new ideas?
If so, look no further! Boogie Mites have developed comprehensive packs for Early Years settings based on their ‘Active Music Making’ approach.
Packs include a CD with original and well known songs, a DVD showing some of the songs in action and detailed session plans with script so that you won’t be lost for words when you start working with parents. Once you have purchased the pack you can also download song lyrics and notes which offer teacher tips, progression ideas, linked activities and links to the EYFS Development Matters.
There are two options for different age ranges: ‘Boogie Mites Minis’ for children between 1 and 3 years old and Boogie Mites School Ready for children aged 3-5 years old. ‘Boogie Mites Minis’ focuses on making singing and music fun, engaging and developing basic rhythmic awareness as well as helping children to develop their language skills. The ‘Ready for School’ pack helps children to develop the language and listening skills that will help them on their way to becoming readers and to get ready for learning phonics and literacy skills when they move on to school.

I am a huge fan of your materials, finding you through the fabulous I CAN website. I now have the School Ready CD/DVD and have been using it with my pre-schoolers, we particularly love the Tidy Up Tango song, Bangedy Bang Bang and the Shakey Shakey song. As a primary teacher and early years specialist as well as the setting’s SENCO, I recognise high quality resources when I see them and can’t thank you enough for the great learning and fun we have using your materials, particularly as I am not gifted musically, one iota!!!!!!
