Rockin’ with some Blues with Mama Goose!
OMG! Dr. Mike brings back Nursery Rhymes with a modern take. Wow!
Nursery Rhymes are great poems that perfect for introducing many early reading skills. Research suggest that knowledge of nursery rhymes enhances children’s phonological awareness and sensitivity to individual phonemes and rhyme, and stimulates phonemic skill development (Harper, L. 2011) Second, they are good for the brain. Not only does the repetition of rhymes and stories teach children how language works, it also builds memory capabilities that can be applied to all sorts of activities. Third, nursery rhymes preserve a culture from previous generations…from grandparents, parents, to young children.
Reciting, chanting and singing these nursery rhymes will allow all kids to feel confident about singing, dancing and performing these rhymes because they are so easy to remember and fun to say while making connections between movement, rhythm and words. Developing critical early reading skills can be accomplished by playing with language and there is no greater way to play with language than through these great nursery rhymes. These songs will bring joy to a child’s discovery of an old language experience. Finally, and more importantly, researchers’ tells us that rhymers turn into readers!
