Kidlo – Nursery Rhymes for Kids is an app which EYFS children can use to learn a lot of different nursery rhymes in a colourful, child-friendly manner. It’s a very engaging app and can help you introduce the children in your class to a wide variety of classic or educational nursery rhymes.
What The Children Do
Children can sing-a-long to the nursery rhymes as they play on-screen. Each nursery rhyme has an animated video which helps to bring the song to life for the children.
The music is divided into the following categories:
- Nursery Rhymes
- ABCD Songs
- Old MacDonald Songs
- Row Your Boat
Children can use all of these songs in class in either an educational or fun manner – the alphabet song is particularly useful to help engage a child in a phonics lesson or when teaching letters and sounds.
As the song plays, the words will appear on-screen to help the children sing-a-long whilst developing their reading skills.
How It Works
Nursery Rhymes is without doubt one of the easiest apps to use. All children have to do is select the category they want and then select the song and the app will play the nursery rhyme for them.
Why Its Good
It’s an extremely colourful app which really helps to bring the nursery rhyme to life for the children. Characters such as Old McDonald dance next to their sheep whilst the music plays so children can picture the scene that they’re singing about.
There’s also a wide range of nursery rhymes for the children which gives the app a lot of long-term potential and ensures you will get a lot of use out of it.
Free, with in-app purchases, but you get the majority of the songs free.
