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.
