Did you know there is new neuroscience supporting the teaching of nursery rhymes? I crafted this book of nursery rhymes and activities with the help of a woman who has practiced in the Montessori method for 40 years. I have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction.
Each rhyme comes with an activity and is aligned with Common Core Foundational Standards for Reading (k).
Crafting this book was nostalgic.
My grandmother had a doll collection that I admired through a China cabinet whenever I visited her home. Following her passing,
I inherited a treasured Mother Goose doll.
Shortly before Tata’s (my great aunt’s) passing, I took my daughters to visit her in the hospital. She told me she had a dream that my girls knew all of their nursery rhymes. Shamefully, I thought “They don’t.”
In their honor, I am proud to say my children now know their nursery rhymes and many, many other children will soon as well.
