The Wiggles' professional experience as early childhood educators has taught them that children learn best through play. In the first of their Wiggle and Learn DVDs, The Wiggles help extend children's knowledge and understanding and so provide a firm foundation for future academic achievements. And by the way it.s a lot of fun! Listen to Getting Strong!, you'll dance to the Sporting Salsa, play a version of musical cushions with When the music stops and smell, see, touch, taste and hear with The five senses. These songs are all related to children's health and physical development. There are also songs that explore concepts of language and literacy. Children are encouraged to explore song and spoken language in ways that encourage the making of meaning like the delightful song A frog went a walking. They examine the comparative use of language in The biggest smile of all, compare letters and sounds and play with rhymes and with other languages in songs such as Yiasou Everybody!
