I hate to admit it, but I have really been useless since my summer break began! I have taken naps and watched too much TV. I have shopped. I have played. Now, I'm ready to get busy! So, I am starting on a new unit for TeachersPayTeachers. I should have it ready in a couple of weeks.
I realized a few years ago that my students do not know nursery rhymes, so we have started doing a Nursery Rhyme unit during the first couple of weeks of school, before we begin our Reading series. I am putting these activities into a beginning-of-the-year Nursery Rhyme Unit.
Please leave comments about whether or not you use nursery rhymes early in the year.
