Nursery Rhyme Day: A Unit Study

Thursday was Nursery Rhyme Day at our house, inspired by Porridge Play Doe over at Fairy Dust Teaching. We ate porridge (Mal to Meal) for breakfast and read nursery rhymes all day. Not just the classics but spin offs from the classics like "Three Havalinas." This is a great way to teach basic literature skills.

We fed Porridge Play Doe to the Three Bears...

We made our own Storybook Village inspired by Charlottesfancy...

And we finished up the day by writing our own nursery Rhymes...

My son, who just started first grade and rarely produces anything on paper, shocked us with this list of perfectly spelled rhyming words...

It was a fun change of pace and a good review.
