Big Idea: LAFS 3. RL 2.5/ 4.RL 2.5/ 5.RL 2.5 –
I can understand differences between drama [ dialogue /scenes ] and poems [rhythm/meter/ stanzas] by comparing mother goose nursery rhymes to a play about mother goose.
Why Mother Goose –
Is it Out of Date – Old Fashioned?
Reasons why nursery rhymes and little sing songs are important
- Nonsense Fun – enjoyable
- Musical – Sing Song easy to remember
- Rhyming Poetry – helps when learning to read
- Pronouncing different [phonemes] Linguistic Sounds –
Dr. Seuss is the New Mother Goose
- Last line should read away with the spoon.
Jack and Jill [18th Century]
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after
“Mary, Mary, quite contrary” 1744
Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maids all in a row.
