Nursery Rhymes and songs help develop children’s literacy skills. Adults and children can have a lot of fun singing together and following actions and gestures to help understand new words. We have provided word sheets to help adults extend their own repertoire and sung the songs to help parents to get the rhythm of a new song or rhyme.
