Short Nursery Rhymes for Children

Often, we as parents end up searching short nursery rhymes for our children. Sometimes I have needed short nursery rhymes for combining them with an activity. At other times, I have needed short nursery rhymes, to avoid playing long videos to my child and to limit his video and screen time.

Nursery rhymes are a great way of teaching early phonics skills (the ability to hear, identify and manipulate letter sounds). If a parent wishes to start teaching rhymes to his/her child, it’s always wise to start with shorter format rhymes (with greater frequency of repetition of rhyming words) because of three reasons listed below.

The short Attention span of kids

Usually, toddlers have very small attention span ranging from 1 to 3 minutes. So, while the prime purpose of a rhyme for the kid is to have fun while listening and watching, the parents today are also driven by the hope that it will also induce the understanding of phonics and aide in language development.

Greater Retention

Shorter format nursery rhymes with greater frequency of repetition of rhyming words make it easier for the toddlers to focus and appreciate the essence of rhyming words & phonics which in turn makes rhymes fun to listen and watch. Additionally, in terms of language milestone development of the toddlers, rhymes are the best way for children to practice in pitch, volume as well as understanding the rhythms of a language.

Easy Repetition

Short nursery rhymes also make it easier for the child to remember and recite it. This, in turn, makes the child more confident as he/she gets appreciation from caregivers. This appreciation will keep the children bringing back to rhymes again and again. Some parents also prefer singing the rhymes aloud in sync with the device’s volume, which encourages the child as well to memorize and repeat. Many times, rhymes become some of the child’s first sentences.
