  • Ask the class if they know any nursery rhymes.
  • Explain that a nursery rhyme is a short, rhyming story that is usually sung rather than read.
  • Give your own examples of nursery rhymes, and ask students to raise their hands whenever they recognize something you say. Some familiar rhymes you can mention are: "Hey Diddle Diddle," "Humpty Dumpty," "I'm a Little Teapot," and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider."
