Nursery Rhymes
Nursery Rhymes - Poetry You Should Know PowerPoint. 25 nursery rhymes from Mother Goose to teach students of all ages who may not be familiar with them. Promotes cultural literacy. This can be a great introduction to a poetry unit, and students can research some of the history and meanings of the old rhymes. Some of the poems had religious and other historical meanings. The slides have illustrations, and some of the rhymes have tunes associated with the slides. I have read aloud some of the rhymes. Younger students will enjoy the rhymes, and this projected on your whiteboard can supplement your nursery rhyme unit. Also use with older students to teach alliteration, repetition, and other sound devices and figurative language used in poetry. Updated July 2015.
