Nursery Rhymes for Toddlers – This Little Piggy

There are different nursery rhymes in the world of children out there and there are a couple of ones which are mostly known among parents, teachers and children. The one rhyme we have brought in this video to get the kids introduced to it is called “This Little Piggy”.

Choosing songs with meaningful lyrics is one of the important things that parents and teachers should focus their attention on and make sure that the song they have chosen does not carry any meanings that might turn out to be aggressive in the end.

This Little Piggy is a nursery rhyme that carries those words:

“This little piggy stayed at home,

This little piggy has roast beef,

This little piggy had none!

And this little piggy cried all the way home”

The benefits of the nursery rhymes

Different benefits come from these nursery rhymes for toddlers in addition to filling their day with something cheerful that would keep them excited and energetic. These benefits include being helpful when it comes to the listening skills that the kids will end up having which will eventually bring them to the point where they will be good at reading. In addition to that, these nursery rhymes are good for phonics and give the kids the chance to spell and pronounce the letters and the words correctly (What is Phonics?).

The benefits are also related to the social life of those kids who will sing along with one another at the nursery and thus will feel the social connections they might have and at the same time will be able to build conversations and deal with other people in the future. This benefit is not always effective when parents use these nursery rhymes at home because they will be singing them all alone, but parents could take such a role and enrol themselves in singing along with the kids, giving them this social interactivity feeling.

Listening to these rhymes is always exciting and interesting for the kids, but sometimes they might not love what they are listening to and at this point, parents should obey the rules and change the songs which the kids do not find very interesting to listen to. There are other nursery rhymes which you can check through this link (Nursery Rhymes for Kids).

Some parents and teachers tend to use these nursery rhymes for kids as a lesson to teach them something, such as math or the English alphabet for example, and it turns out to be effective because kids love such interesting methods since it sticks to their minds faster and easier, so they end up learning the lesson in a much smoother way (Counting Rhymes for Children).

The famous nursery rhymes which we also have brought on our channel, there is “Mary Had a Little Lamb“, “Old Mother Hubbard“, “Hush Little Baby“, and “Two Little Dickie Birds“.

Some tips should be kept in mind when it comes to nursery rhymes and the way parents and teachers choose them. They should choose the easy ones which the kids will love immediately after hearing them, they should choose those meaningful ones which are cheerful and do not have any negative words or phrases, and they should also choose those which might deliver some lessons to the kids and making them sound easier for them.

There are lots of things that kids could actually learn from the different nursery rhymes which they might listen to, but most importantly these rhymes are interesting for the kids in general when parents and teachers lose it all and don’t know what they are supposed to do with them next, because it keeps them excited for some time.

Just keep in mind to not let the kids watch these videos for so many hours during the day, just half an hour in order not to let them get used to their existence in their day and not to imitate what they might be exposed to.
