What you need to know

Rhymes are little songs that have patterns and rhythm to improve speech. We are so used to our children reciting these rhymes repeatedly throughout the day that we don’t even realize their importance in our child’s development. In fact nursery rhymes play a huge role in speech development. Speech is the verbal expression of language and includes articulation and expressions. If the child knows the words but is not able to articulate them well enough to be understood by others, more development in speech is needed.

Rhymes are part of every school curriculum and assist in expansion of language, clarity of words, better voice throw, expression through hand and facial movements etc. Many of these rhymes also provide basic counting skills, knowledge of cultures, animals and birds. So in addition to being a fun way to work on your child’s speech, it also helps to increase their knowledge and vocabulary.
