Lesson Plans follow approximately the same format each week. On Mondays, we revisit favorite rhymes, then introduce this week’s new rhyme. Whenever we’ve been able to locate the tune, we teach children the rhyme through song. We also chant the rhyme, and work on its rhythm. On Tuesdays, we emphasize acting out the rhyme, using our various Monday chants to provide the accompaniment for our “actors”. On Wednesdays, we introduce the rhyming picture set, explaining the new vocabulary that comes with the picture set. On Thursdays, we work with the picture sets and the Riddle Rhymes.
