in my DD school they sing to remember. you can take any song kids know, old McDonald, twinkle twinkle Lil star, etc and work in different learning games. and when you make up the songs, you and your cousins DD can make a big poster board with all the alphabet letters or pics of what the song is about, maybe cut them out from a magazine and glue them on in the right order, and point as you sing. it may be easier for her to learn visually.
