Learning at Home

Taped Voices

You Will Need:

Cassette recorder, tape, and a book, song, or poem

Directions:

Tape your voice singing, reading a book or poem, or talking to your baby. Play this tape when your baby is going to sleep, commuting in the car, or at times when you can’t be with her.

Tip:

Sing or read often to your baby while you are holding her so she will relate the sound of your voice with the warmth of your arms. Poems or books with a lot of repetition or rhyming words are best. Use a high-pitched voice or “parentese” with very young babies but try to phase out “baby talk” after about 6 months of age. Frequently say the baby’s name on the tape. This tape will help baby feel at ease when she is not with you.
