Class Experience

Nursery Rhymes are a fantastic tool in the early years classroom. They give children exposure to rhyme and rhythm, and teach phonemic awareness in a fun and repetitive way. Classic nursery rhymes have been shared with young children by their parents for hundreds of years. This is because nursery rhymes support early language and literacy development in a fun and accessible way for students. For example, through nursery rhymes children are exposed to fun and memorable rhymes and word families like diddle/fiddle, stream/dream and dock/clock. Nursery Rhymes are also full of fun rhythm which make it easy for even the youngest of children to join in and follow. One great thing is that nursery rhymes are so much fun, children don’t even realize they are learning such important elements as assonance, alliteration, rhythm, etc. While Nursery Rhymes are not limited to just the youngest of students, it does make Nursery Rhymes a great tool for teaching little language learners. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
