Here is a list of 5 free websites to learn nursery rhymes online. The websites have some interesting and engrossing ways to help kids learn the rhymes.
Rhymes are meant to be the stepping stone in the field of education for small kids sitting in their classrooms. Learning rhymes is both interesting and helpful. But sometimes, the old method of teaching these rhymes to kids with the help of books and gestures can be a little boring. However, this method has been followed over the years, and it cannot be said that it has failed. When we were in that age, this was the only way to learn. But now, with so many things changing around the world, tweaking this method a bit will not be harmful. After all, most of the things can now be found on the Internet, and children seem to love this invention. Thus, I have compiled a list of 5 such website that help you to learn nursery rhymes online with some innovative ways. Another benefit is that you get to learn a lot more rhymes than you do in classrooms.
The 5 free websites reviewed in this article are enchanted learning, BusSongs, Super Simple Learning, Classic Rocks, and Mother Goose.
