Developing Language Skills Through Singing

Children are very drawn to music and rhymes. There is something captivating when listening to melodies and being able to jive with them. This is the reason why children enjoy singing. In fact, play a tune and your child is most likely to break into a singing or dancing. But, did you know that there is more to music and singing than just the entertainment that notes and melodies bring?

Studies show that children who were constantly exposed to music and were given many opportunities to sing with their families and classmates at school are more likely to have advanced verbal or oral skills. Through constant singing, children develop their memory and gain a wider vocabulary.

Singing is a very enjoyable and is still one of the most educational activities for children. This is the reason why nursery rhymes never run out of style and almost all kiddie shows would involve singing songs. Kids tend to learn faster through repetition, and letting them sing in repetitive lines helps to develop their memory and literacy. Because of the element of tunes, singing is proven to be more enjoyable and preferred by children over formal speech. Making children memorize lines formally seems to drain their energy and interest fast, which is why singing with repetitive lines is more productive.

Singing nursery rhymes develop a child’s language skills since they learn how sentences are constructed and how words are strung together to form a complete thought. They are unconsciously learning as they are enjoying the activity and because of this, parents are encouraged to sing with their children in their early years. Singing is an introduction to language, and parents should sing to  their children as early as their baby stages.
