Nursery Rhymes may seem old-fashioned, but these silly songs and poems are gold mines when it comes to boosting your child’s verbal and literacy skills!
Children enjoy hearing these rhymes so much as they are short little metered poems that are easy to remember. Learning nursery rhymes is good for children that helps them to learn language.
During a child’s first five years of life there is massive language development taking place. The more language babies hear during this period of development, the better students they will be later on.
That’s the reason we at learning House fill the school with language, in the form of conversations, reading, singing, and reciting nursery rhymes.
Nursery rhymes are important to babies and young children because they are another form of language and the more language we fill our children with, the smarter and more eloquent of speech they will be. Rhymes teach small children the rhythm and rhyme of language in a fun and often silly way.
The rhyme and rhythm of the simple rhymes helps children develop language skills for reading and speaking. They help develop vocabulary in a fun and silly way that kids love.
As a parent, you too can participate in the development years of your kids by reading and singing nursery rhymes to your child that will help them learn and grow in their language and literacy skills.
Most people know at least a handful of these rhymes that they can recite from memory, so having a book around is not even necessary.
