[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]Nursery
Rhymes
[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ][/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]Reciting nursery rhymes to young children
helps improve their language and memory, and develops important rhythmic
patterns.[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]Children love songs with repetitive action - like this one, where
you touch the parts of the baby's body as you name
them:
[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
knees and toes,
Two eyes, two ears, a mouth and a nose;
[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]As the baby gets older you can
recite 'One two buckle my shoe' as you climb the stairs, particularly once your
baby starts walking. Also sing rhymes like 'Baa baa black sheep' - and when you
get to the 'three bags full' hold up three fingers, then bend down one finger at
a time as you 'distribute' the bags.[/FONT]


[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]As you recite the rhymes, you can
start talking to the child about the animals or objects being mentioned in the
rhymes. For example, talk about the wool together, how it is shorn off the sheep
and what happens next. Find a woollen garment for your child to
feel.

things around the house, such as fine print in books. They can even do the
Fingerprints activity. These magnifiers are also useful when children are
exploring flowers and insects.
