Nursery rhymes: first, they can teach melody, rhythm and rhyming. They carry in their lyrics glimpses of the past to give children a sense of their heritage. Their words can also teach morals to kids through the focus of their songs.
Bedtime stories: kids love a good story and I can use the characters to teach them the routines I want them to adopt. Cleaning, brushing their teeth, getting dressed, eating properly… you name it, bedtime stories can help you teach it to your kids!
