Product Description
The nursery rhymes I grew up with are becoming lost to today's student. When I taught 8th graders and referenced a rhyme, say Humpty Dumpty, I would look out unto the sea of desks and receive a lot of blank stares in return. Humpty what?? Which would inevitably lead to some sort of a sex joke.
Whether you love them or hate them, Nursery rhymes are part of a classical lexicon that children should know. Think of them as a precursor to Beowulf. More importantly, they allow children a space where they can practice the concept of rhyme and rhythm. They introduce interesting characters with unusual problems. Plus, they are really silly and fun.
The purpose of this book is to introduce classical rhymes to children. Then I have created a Re-Versed version. Some are told from a different point of view, others explore themes set forth in the original rhyme. All are fun to read and learn.
Using these as a parent I would read them every night with my children using varying rhythm, dynamics, voices, and speed. As a teacher, I would read these in small group setting. Each poem set comes with flash cards. Some of these cards have words the children need to know, others contain high frequency words and still other have multiple meaning words. The word cards contain a picture, a simple definition and a place for the child to write their very own meaning, showing they understand the word.
I hope you and your children enjoy reading through this fun collection.
