Parents, caregivers, and teachers have been teaching their children nursery rhymes for hundreds of years. The reason that nursery rhymes continue to be popular is because they help children develop language, vocabulary, and help them form the foundation for learning to rhyme words on their own. Many nursery rhymes also contain phrases that start with words that all have the same beginning sounds, so this helps children begin to become aware of the sounds of their language.
As children learn these traditional rhymes, they exercise and stretch their memory skills, which helps them prepare to memorize future material. This means that learning nursery rhymes helps the brain “practice memorizing” so that it will be ready to remember harder things, such as the alphabet, sight words, or math facts.
Please note that our version of these songs include only the first verse of each nursery rhyme. We did this to keep it simple for very young children, and to help all children be successful at memorizing them. To help make this an active learning experience, download our free illustrations and notes on the motions here. When kids put their whole body into it, they can’t help but learn!
