Kindergartners Learn Nursery Rhymes

Nursery rhymes are a great way for young readers to improve their reading skills. With some help from third grade students, Pioneer's kindergartners learned nursery rhymes for about two weeks.

At the end of the unit kindergartners could dress up as a nursery rhyme character. Then, kindergartners and third graders presented these living nursery rhymes to each other, the Foster Grandparents, and some parents.

"In addition to reading, this was an opportunity to learn more about rhymes, and to practice public speaking skills," said K teacher Jody Greif. "They did just great and it was a lot of fun!"
