The Squeakquel Soundtrack: A Teaching Opportunity?

About a week ago I shared my experiences with the new Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Motion Picture Soundtrack with you. This jammin soundtrack is a delight for children and brings on the laughs for sure!

The Squeakquel Movie Soundtrack is great entertainment for both kids and parents. Featuring chipmunkd renditions of classics from Beyonce, Katy Perry, the Bee Gees and many more, Alvin, Simon, Theodore and their girlfriends, The Chipettes, provide hours of fun for everyone.

In working with WB Word of Mouth Marketing to spread the word about this soundtrack, Ive been asked to share any development and learning experiences weve had involving the music and the movie. Im happy to share!

My daughter is 2 years old and has a limited vocabulary at the moment (her two favorite words/phrases right now are Pooh and There ya go), but that causes me to notice even more how she expresses herself in other ways. Ive been watching as we listen to the music on the Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Soundtrack, and besides the laughing and dancing around (which in itself is learning and developing motor skills!), Ive been able to use the soundtrack to emphasize repeated words and try to expand her vocabulary. Ive been doing that a lot with everything lately, and this music is no exception!

Ive also noticed that she has been singing by herself a lot more. Just random things, not necessarily from this soundtrack, but I know that having cheerful music around is a huge encouragement. It puts her in a good mood for learning, actually!

If your child enjoys the movie, listening to the soundtrack will be that much more enjoyable especially if its chore time or theyre bored in the car. 🙂
