Nursery Rhymes

For hundreds of years, nursery rhymes have been an exciting and integral part of children's education. The memorable phrases and melodic nature of music make them wonderful practice tools for children developing language skills such as pronunciation and word memorization, while also passing along traditional stories, songs, and poetry.

In the spirit of this reliable tradition, Starfall offers interactive songs and videos for kids to sing along with, listen to, and learn from. The intuitive controls for this activity allow children to independently explore a wide selection of music. Children can enjoy access to 47 nursery rhymes, each including recited audio with adjustable volume (closed captions and lyrics available).

Starfall’s nursery rhyme activity helps early learners improve memory, concentration, and spatial intelligence. Repetition of rhymes and stories helps children understand how language works and assists in developing inferencing skills, both with encountering new vocabulary and in reading comprehension. Because verses are made up of patterns, they are easy first memorization pieces.
