Why Nursery Rhymes Are So Important?

 
Today’s world presents our children with a different growing environment. The availability of devices and the internet is not what we grew up around. Yet, it is a present reality in our current generation.
 
However, this doesn’t mean that our children can not grow up with the many joys that we did. One of those joys were learning and singing nursery rhymes. Admittedly, they were a defining part of life when it comes to language development. Nursery rhymes made learning easier and were a fun way of passing time.
 
Nursery rhymes have been in existence since time immemorial. Moreover, it goes without saying, that these poems and songs are here to stay. They offer value and are a critical part of our culture and society.

Lyrics:

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.
And eyes, and ears, and mouth,
And nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.
 
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.
And eyes, and ears, and mouth,
And nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

2- Twinkle twinkle little star

Lyrics:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
 
When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

The wheels on the bus go round and round,

The doors on the bus go open and shut;
Open and shut;
Open and shut.
The doors on the bus go open and shut;
all through the town.
 
 
The Driver on the bus says “Move on back,

The Driver on the bus says “Move on back”,

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor,
And the doctor said
No more monkeys jumping on the bed
 
Four little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed
 
Three little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed
 
Two little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed
 
One little monkey jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
Put those monkeys right to bed

Lyrics:

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again
 
The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again
 
The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

9- Ten In The Bed

Copyright Farmees – Nursery Rhymes And Kids Songs
 
 

Lyrics:

There were ten in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and
one fell out
 
There were nine in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over
And one fell out
 
There were eight in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were seven in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were six in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were five in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were four in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were three in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There were two in the bed
And the little one said,
“Roll over! Roll over!”
So they all rolled over and one fell out
 
There was one in the bed
And the little one said,
 
“Alone at last!”
