I will be beginning my sixth year as a kindergarten teacher at a Title One School. Each year it amazes me how many of my students do not know nursery rhymes. Some are familiar with a few but often cannot recite them or tell what happens next. Nursery rhymes teach and reinforce so many literacy skills. We learn rhyme, rhythm, vocabulary, decoding skills, word and letter associations, storytelling, reading fluency and so much more! I would like to add a nursery rhyme pocket chart center to my classroom. The center would include four nursery rhyme chart kits and a stick-on pocket chart. These chart kits include the nursery rhyme on sentence strips for sequencing and building the rhyme, picture and word cards for matching and cloth props for acting out events. This center would provide more exposure to nursery rhymes, help teach concepts about print and build much needed vocabulary. Even students with nursery rhyme exposure could benefit from this center by gaining confidence and advancing there literacy skills and knowledge. Please help us to build our literacy skills through nursery rhymes!
