We all grew up with nursery rhymes. Some are meant for bedtime, and others are meant to have a fun and exciting time. Some of the most fun songs from our childhood were those that you could sing along with your friends.
These songs are not only meant for fun and games, however. They also act as a tool that can help teach young children the value of the English language.
Learning Through Song
Nursery rhymes are a learning tool that can help get your child interested in the joys of singing and reading at a young age. Showing them that reading and singing along is fun, they will be more likely to carry that positive attitude with them as they grow and begin their education. It’s a great stepping stone to use to prepare them and their developing minds for what’s to come.
Exposing children to nursery rhymes like these at an early age has been shown to increase their creativity and help them develop literacy skills that they can carry with them into elementary school. A video like this, in particular, is especially helpful in developing their creative side.
This is why The Wheels On The Bus song for kids works so well.
Thanks to how the lyrics are written in this song, it gives children a chance to come up with their own verses as the song progresses. Encourage them to examine their surroundings and think up the next verse on the fly.
You can help your toddler along by giving them ideas to suggest until they get the hang of it and are able to come up with topics on their own. With enough practice, they will soon be able to take their fun game to their friends and enjoy a great time singing and laughing away.
