Learning English Through Nursery Rhyme : Jack and Jill Song

source


I have two daughters, one is 3-year-old and the other is 6- year-old. Both are very cute and have a bit naughty. As an English teacher, I know how important of English to the future of the children. So I decided to get them used to English since they were little.

As far as I know the general formula of learning a new language always begins with the sound of speech through passive listening.

Then, when you get used to that language, parents give their children lessons. After a good accumulation from a single word, they get acquainted with learning the sentence. Finally, create a communication environment for them.


Passive listening with Nursery rhyme


A nursery rhyme is a traditional poem or song for children in Britain and many other countries, but usage of the term only dates from the late 18th/early 19th century.

I let them listen unconscious English through the song “Jack and Jill”. The purpose of unconscious listening is to understand the English sound, the brain is familiar with that language and then will capture the sound very well.

Maybe some parents will worry that their children are distracted and don’t know if they understand.

Don’t bother with that. For the purpose is not the kids to understand in an active way , it is that the kids’ brain is accustomed to English.


Open the song several times


The purpose of listening to children over and over again is to learn by heart all the music and singing. Parents should let your child hear it again, do not change much content.

About the time of listening on a day: Should limit from 30 minutes to 1 hour only, divided into 2 times, each 30 minutes.

I like the time at breakfast and the time from school before dinner. Do not overuse it so that their mind can relax with stillness and focus on other things.


Content song


Lyrics:

Jack & Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after.
Jack & Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jill fell down and broke her crown
and Jack came tumbling after.
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Carefully they brought it down
and gave it to their mother.
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Two cute and funny mice in the song made my kids very excited. Two mice Jack and Jill jumped happily up the hill to get water. But half way through, Jack fell and broke his crown, and Jill fell after it. The two rolled around in circles make my kids can’t stop laughing.

After taking the water is the mother bath for two children and wipe them by the big leaf.
