Guiding children as they create and sing their own rhymes is easy and fun when following the simple steps presented in this unit. Pre-K and K work together with the teacher as a group to create class rhymes and sing them to the simple melody provided. children in first grade or older quickly learn the format for creating their own rhymes (when modeled by the teacher) and sing them repeatedly to the four-line melody. Samples of rhymes written by classes for words beginning with every letter of the alphabet show how fun and easy writing simple poetic verse can be. For teachers who choose not to teach writing poetic verse, these ABC rhymes can be used as a quick break when students need a quick change of activities.
