Rhymes Recitation Competition

Rhymes help children to learn the wonderful sounds of the language and make every topic very easy to understand. Rhyme adds the magical touch to the development of little ones.

Rhymes recitation is a combination of 3 Rs - Rhyme, Rhythm and Repetition. Rhyme helps to remember what word comes next, rhythm will help the flow, and repetition helps memorization and literacy skills. There are lots of rhymes for learning numbers, alphabets, fruits, vegetables, community helpers and seasons etc.

These days, schools are holding many competitions for kids. My little princess, Eva took part for rhyme recitation competition in her preschool (Lakshaya International School) and secured first rank. She wanted to participate in the competition with “Farmer Plants the Seeds” rhyme. I helped her by preparing a chart which shows the life cycle of a tree. It turns out to be simple for children to find out about planting and developing trees.
