ORAL : Benefits of Nursery Rhymes

ORAL TEST FOR ENGLISH

We are working to make it successful eventhough we are not sitting next-to-next for discussion, connected only by Facebook, we managed to complete the task. Our title is "Benefits of Singing Nursery Rhymes".


Maria: Once upon a time, there was a man sitting on a wall who fell and broke into million pieces. No one could help him. The end!

Dayout: Hey! What kind of story is that? Ehem, viewers, you would never read this story to your children.

Uyaq: Well agreed guys. Assalamualaikum and a very good day I bid to all audiences in our studio. Welcome to our Talk Show. I, Nurul Fikri Auliya.

Aifaa: And I Nur Aifaa Adnan and that is Maria Syafiqah..

Maria: Hi !

Aifaa: And Farah Nurhidayah..

Dayout: Good morning!

Aifaa: Regarding the first hint just now, today, we would like to discuss with all of our viewers about nursery rhymes.

Maria: An example of nursery rhymes, “Humpty Dumpty” has been a favourite for generations.

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s me, couldn’t put Humpty together again!”

Aifaa: To all viewers, as you and your child sing another rousing rendition of “Humpty Dumty” you may wonder what benefits of singing nursery rhimes give to your children – besides fun.

Uyaq: Prepare your child for future learning and teach them beginning skills?

Dayout: That’s right! Besides, nursery rhimes present stories in rhyiming format, in a way that is not normally heard in everyday speech.

Maria: And this make it easier for the child to pick out the rhyiming words. Studies have shown that children who have trouble with rhyiming words, have trouble learning to read.

Uyaq: So, introducing nursery rhimes early gives your children practise. The rythms present in nursery rhimes help children to remember the words, exercising their auditory memory skills.

Dayout: For addition information, children who are not yet able to read, have a greater capacity for remembering things they hear, as they cannot yet refer back to a book if they are asked a question.

Aifaa: Thus, nursery rhimes paint colourful images of characters and situation that expand a child’s imagination. Imagination is the basis of make believe play and story-telling, skills that become important as your child grows.

Maria: To all audiences in the studio, do you know singing and acting out nursery rhimes and finger plays with your child like “ 1 little 2, little 3, little Indian” or “Twinkle twinkle little star” let them know that you enjoy spending time with them?

Dayout: Nursery rhimes introduce literature as recreation and can translate into a love of resding as the child grows.

Uyaq: “Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir. Three bags full” and yet, performing nursery rhimes gives your child practise and confidence to speak in front of strangers.

Aifaa: Finally, nursery rhimes don’t just connect us to other people, they also link us to the past. Like what Dr. Smith said “The retelling of each nursery rhimes is a sort of connective tissue between the past, present and future”

Maria: The nursery rhimes passed down from generation to generation becomes a verbal heiroom

Dayout: So, keep on pasing nursery rhimes to your children, and your children will pass it to your grandchildren and until to your great-great-great-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN!

Uyaq: That’s all for today! Thanks for watching us! Remember, we are not perfect but we are parents who loves perfection. So let the curtains closed, here comes the last rhimes! “London Bridges is falling down, falling down, falling downnn”

ALL: With that, we thank you.
