7 fun Spanish nursery rhymes and lyrics for preschoolers

Why do children love nursery rhymes and fun lyrics that they can easily remember to sing to? Perhaps, one reason is that they are fun to memorize. But one of the main reasons is that it is fun to say silly rhymes. Many of the nursery rhymes have silly saying and stories. And these fun rhymes are what motivate children to read and learn word patterns.

In fact, many of these rhymes and lyrics are performed with fun music, instruments, finger puppets, and flannel boards. No matter how the rhymes and lyrics are presented, what matters are the reading skills that children can learn from them. And it鈥檚 fun to learn them in English and Spanish.

Here, seven very simple, fun rhymes and lyrics are compiled. Practice these in various ways to encourage children to keep on reading and learning.
