Ad-Lib Nursery Rhymes: Parts of Speech Camp-Mary Had a Little Lamb
Wendi Woodburn-Master's in Teaching (M.I.T.)
In this one-week camp, your child will learn about different parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs) in a fun way, using nursery rhymes, as they end up creating their own new song, to the same tune, by the end of the week.
US Grade Kindergarten - 2
In all of my five-day “Ad-Lib Parts of Speech Camps,” your child will learn what nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs are, as we use well-known nursery rhymes to learn about different parts of speech. We will read over them; sing; learn about the particular part of speech for the day; find them in the song that we’re using that week, and then switch those nouns, verbs, adjectives, and/or any adverbs in a “Mad-Lib” kind of way so they can create their own (probably silly) song by the end of...
Students will learn what nouns, action verbs, adjectives, and adverbs are. They will get practice not only finding those parts of speech in the different nursery rhymes but then will also choose their own to replace the ones in the different nursery rhymes, in each camp, which will reinforce their understanding of each part of speech. Additional words they may not know, like "fleece" will also be taught, as will some clapping of syllables to give them a basic understanding of syllables before they learn about them in school.
I am a certified K-8th teacher with decades of experience in the classroom, most of which was in K-3rd grade.
Homework OfferedParents or caregivers might want to help their students note down what choices they want for their different parts of speech each day, in case students want to change what they thought up in class, just so they can keep track. That should only take about 5 minutes or less each day. On Thursday, after our fourth class, however, they may need help typing up their finished song with the various nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs they chose, and then illustrate it at home so they will have their finished song ready for class on Friday.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
It would be helpful if they knew the nursery rhyme before class, and had typing help for the final project. Other than that, they will want to use crayons, colored pencils, paints, or markers....their choice....and paper, to illustrate their new song for our final day when they share their creation.
