Entertaining Spanish rhymes and lyrics

Spanish rhymes as storytelling is a fun learning experience for children. They learn about new words and new letter sounds. When children have fun with words and rhyming, then they tend to like reading more often and tell others about the story.

In this way, Spanish rhymes are a great way to introduce new literature to children. This is also a wonderful way to challenge children to move from the beginner reading level more advanced reading.

Another great way to encourage rhyming is to recite popular nursery rhymes with a song or with the help of musical instruments. Musical instruments like maracas, tambourines, shakers, and bells are wonderful learning tools to help children recognize particular phonemes.

And, it helps them develop essential reading skills.

To help with the phonological awareness of English and Spanish words, 5 easy rhymes and lyrics are presented:

Su lana era blanca como la nieve

Y todo lugar que María iba,

La seguió a la escuela un día

Eso no estaba permitido

Los niños se reían y jugaban

Al ver el corderito en la escuela.
