Music has the power to stir our emotions. We often observe children singing or humming songs, rhymes, and sometimes just humming some familiar sounds. Here in Sirohi, firstly, children do not have much exposure to the English language and, secondly, it is their third language. Students often find it difficult to comprehend or even articulate certain words, phrases and sentences. Hence, doing rhymes with them every day becomes essential to reinforce their learning. Music has rhythm and melody, which helps students to develop fluency in the language and when rhymes are sung with actions and gestures, children are also able to comprehend the meanings of English words and expressions.
