Using/copying actions in rhymes and songs

 

Why is this important?

Nursery rhymes and songs are repetitive and easily become familiar, there by helping children to remember a series of actions associated with specific  words, and to become increasingly confident in being able to predict what is going to happen next.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What to do
• In a small group or individually, sing favourite nursery rhymes together,
particularly those with actions, e.g.

‘I’m a Little Teapot’ ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’
• Slow down your singing: give the child a chance to join in with the actions. Don’t
worry about singing the same song several times in a row – children love the
repetition and it helps them become familiar with the actions.
• Guide the child’s hands/arms to encourage him/her to join in.
• Older children/siblings love nursery rhymes and can encourage younger children
to join in.
