When Ian took Kindermusik, Ms. Shelly would sing a very simple clean up song," x away. x away. Time to put the x away."
It seemed to have an effect on him so I kept singing it.
Last night, I was putting away all the shoes that Ian took off the shoe shelves when he came in, picked up his sandals and sang,"Sandals away. Sandals away." Th tune was perfect. then he picked up some shoes and said,"Shoes away. Shoes away."
I wasn't singing the song, he did it on his own.
