Singing Nursery Rhymes to children can help develop their communication and Language skills. Introducing children to a variety of rhymes can help them to learn about different sounds. This is an important part of developing early literacy skills.
Children may hear what you say but not listen to what you say. Listening to language involves hearing the sounds, attending to them and thinking about them, children need time to tune into the sounds around them. They need time to practise listening to a range of different sounds to develop the skill.
