Stories and Nursery Rhymes to Sing, Rap and Read - Book 3

Themes & Variations


Stories and Nursery Rhymes to Sing, Rap and Read is a great collection of stories and songs for a music class, preschool, daycare, kindergarten or primary classroom. Children love the silly sound effects, the opportunities to play instruments, movement activities and singing storybooks.

The included lessons and activities will help your pre-readers, emerging readers, and readers improve their listening and beginning reading skills. There are several storybooks and fairy tales with songs and sound effects included in this collection. The songs and sound effects turn the stories into a reader’s theatre for your classroom or performance.

The songs in this collection are a wonderful source of predictable stories. Predictable texts supply needed support to emergent readers, who often enter reading by memorizing texts they have heard many times. With a combination of predictable text and illustrations, you have a powerful tool for language learning!

This collection includes a complete ebook of “Is There Room on the Feather Bed?” by Libba Moore Gray, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott, originally published by Scholastic.
