Have you ever noticed that preschool songs are very repetitive? Authors, educators and song writers have purposely written the preschool songs this way. The reason they do this is to help your preschool student learn the different skills that are needed to succeed. Among those skills that are needed are:
Learning how to use these skills separate and together will help a preschool student learn how to use the skills that are needed and will also help them learn how to interact with other students, teachers and adults they will come face to face with in life.
Reading is a very important element that is needed to succeed in today’s economy and society. Without reading, we wouldn’t be able to communicate with each other. Today’s technology has left many students behind. With the technology that has been created, students do not need to think for themselves and learn different ways to complete tasks. With the preschool songs that your preschool student is learning, they will learn how to use these skills without the technology. As the student learns the words and letters within the preschool song, you can show the words and letter also. As soon as the preschool student recognizes and associates them as a pair, they will begin the reading process.
Having a sharp memory will allow a person to go far in life. The better you can remember tasks that have been asked of you or assignments you have been given, the more you will succeed. You use your memory to remember a person’s face, addresses and phone numbers, the number system and alphabet. When a preschool student uses their memory, they will start to use the things they have been taught and associate them in life.
A preschool age student listening skills are sharp. They hear what you tell them, but many times they do not know how to use the words and sentences you have said to them and do what you have asked them. The preschool song and nursery rhymes will help the preschool student learn what the words are saying and how to use them in life. The more preschool songs they learn and remember, the more you will notice their listening skills improving.
Knowing how to communicate is a stepping stone in today’s society. If you cannot communicate with other people, you will not get tasks completed and you will not be able to go very far. Communication is used when we are at school, work and in the home. When a teacher asks you to complete an assignment or task, you need to understand what they are asking you to do. With the nursery rhymes and preschool songs, a child is learning how to do what is asked. With songs that teach a child how to clean up and work together as a team, they are learning to do exactly that. As they grow older, the brain will start to understand how to relate the two together and they will no longer have to sing about cleaning up to understand that is what they are supposed to do.
Nursery rhymes and preschool song that are used promote movement. The more a child learns how to move around and be productive while moving around, the more active they will be throughout their life. Being part of a sports team or working with their hands, the more movement and active they are, the more they are using their brain and learning. The more a student uses their brain, the healthy they will stay and the longer they will live.
