As a young child, it’s likely you were taught classic nursery rhymes like Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty, and Old Mother Hubbard. Although you might not have known it at the time, you were fortunate to have parents and teachers who made sure that these simple rhymes played a part in your childhood.
Technology has a tendency to replace meaningful language-learning experiences. But it doesn’t have to. With the Roybi Robot, your child can learn and recite the same nursery rhymes you know by heart, while using technology in a meaningful way.
Nursery rhymes do more than just bring back childhood memories. Nursery rhymes also play a huge role in boosting your child’s language development! Unfortunately, some experts warn that there’s been a recent decline in the number of children who are learning nursery rhymes.
That doesn’t have to be the case! The Roybi Robot can help your child learn and recite nursery rhymes. When your child has the chance to learn and practice nursery rhymes and simple songs, they’re building the early language skills necessary for future academic success.
Every parent and caregiver wants their child to succeed at school, and supporting your child’s early academic success can be as simple as teaching them Three Blind Mice! When your child uses the Roybi Robot to practice these rhymes and songs, not only are they building their language skills, they’re also engaging with groundbreaking technology.
Learning how nursery rhymes support early language development in young children is so important. Let’s go over some of the basic benefits.
How Nursery Rhymes Support Language
- Becoming familiar with vowels and vowel sounds
- Learning how to put sounds together to make words
- Practicing appropriate pitch and volume
- Recognizing voice inflections (think of how your voice sounds when asking a question)
When children become confident with vowel sounds and putting sounds together to build words, they’re becoming confident in skills that lead to future reading success. With the right caregiver, teacher, or parent, it can become a chance to bond and associate learning with joy.
