*5-star review from Common Sense Media: "These gems are great for all ages, and offer musical support to families from sun up to sun down." (review from Everyday Grooves album)*
From the Fred Rogers Center: Everyday Grooves are musical prompts that help to establish routines and structure in the everyday lives of parents and young children for daily events such as reading, brushing teeth, and getting dressed.
Using Everyday Grooves is simple - the app helps users set up musical prompts throughout the day to help children transition to new activities. When the music starts, turn the volume up so your child can hear and sing along. Or, just play the songs when it is convenient for you!
Each piece is an original song in the style of popular music on the radio, and lyrically walks families through suggested steps for the routine.
12 songs are included for these everyday routines:
Brush Your Teeth!
Get Ready, Let’s Go
Great concept, great songs!
I love the Let's Go song - it reminds me of an Oakenfold song. :)
I took off one star because I would *really* like to see a snooze option. Even better would be a snooze that lets you choose between snoozing a single reminder or snoozing all reminders. If I'm 15 minutes behind schedule, there is very little chance that I'll catch up, so it would be nice to be able to snooze all reminders for 15 minutes.
This is probably one of the best apps I have ever downloaded for my kids! It promotes spending quality time with them. It promotes healthy eating, good hygiene habits and manners. This app is great! You really can't go wrong with this app. If I could give it more stars I would! I rarely write reviews but this app definitely deserved one. Thank you for making this app!
Wonderful resource for transitions!
What a great find! The tunes are catchy and the idea to incorporate a reminder feature is really helpful. I would love to "attach" a real photo to each song to make it more concrete, and have the graphics upgraded for an iPad screen as well. I also agree a potty song is needed. Well done, though. I look forward to more apps from this developer!
