Session Objectives: • Understand the importance of Nursery Rhymes. • Learn various ways Nursery Rhymes can be incorporated into the curriculum. • List ways Nursery Rhymes can be used to meet state objectives.
Nursery Rhymes: Reading nursery rhymes daily helps the student’s brain segment words into syllables and hear similarities between words that rhyme or start with the same sound. TEA Pre-K Guidelines: B. 6. Child can produce a word that rhymes with a given word.
Nursery Rhymes Can: • Enrich young children’s vocabulary. • Provide opportunities for oral language development. • Introduce children to basic story structure such as problem and solution, cause and effect. • Be easily integrated into already existing themes. • Be FUN and engaging for young children.
Teach nursery rhyme for a one or two week duration instead of “chunking” all nursery rhymes into one, brief unit.
Teaching each Nursery Rhyme explicitly will ensure that your students receive plenty of rhyming practice throughout the entire year.
Nursery Rhymes can be easily integrated into your already existing themes (see handout)
