Teaching with Nursery Rhymes

teaching with nursery rhymes

Nursery rhymes are an easy way to teach young children. They naturally love the playful rhythms and songs.

Nursery rhymes make a great co-op class too! I taught a preschool class and each week we would read the rhyme, act it out, and do a craft.

A Bird in the Hair Is Worth???

On our trip to the zoo Sunday afternoon to see the new Koala Walkabout, we discovered a fun Lorikeet aviary.

They are friendly little critters, but it can be a bit unnerving to have them sitting on your head – poop could happen at any moment!
