Nursery rhymes with actions – why they’re perfect for little learners
Children from a very young age can develop language and memory skills as they hear, sing and repeat favourite rhymes and songs. Doing the actions helps this process as they are able to connect an action to a word and also put into practice what they’re learning.
Not to mention it’s fun!
Staff at Tablelands Regional Libraries know all about this and have invented a second verse to one of their favourite Rhyme Time numbers. It has been an absolute hit – check it out and learn it at home with your little ones! See if you can make up your own new verses with animals you and your family know and love.
