Growing Readers and Writers with Help from Mother Goose
This lesson, from ReadWriteThink, will help children grow as readers and writers using the familiar words and characters of nursery rhymes. Children will be encouraged to connect the characters with letters of the alphabet, letting them serve as hooks to help children remember the letters and their sounds and use that knowledge in their writing. The familiar rhyming patterns can also be used to help students identify familiar chunks of words that they can use in their own writing.
