Nursery Rhyme Time!

First let me say,  I love, love, love doing a nursery rhyme unit.  It's very rewarding to hear sweet little ones reciting the rhymes they learned in class.  Many of my students were not very familiar with nursery rhymes, so it was fun introducing them to the magic of the rhyme.

After reciting 'Jack Be Nimble',  the little learners had to order the candlesticks from smallest to biggest.  Afterward, we all recited the rhyme inserting the name of the sweetie instead of 'Jack' as they jumped over the candlesticks.  It was such fun.
Every day we did an art/learning project that incorporated a particular nursery rhyme.  At the end of the week, we put them all together for a take home book.
Here are my sweet little ones reading their take home book, once it was all put together.  The sound of their voices reciting the rhymes was music to my ears!  Since then, I have heard back from several parents telling me how much they love the book.  :)

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day. :)
