Nursery Rhymes help children develop: reading skills.

Nursery Rhymes help children develop: reading skills. When we point to the words as we read them, children learn that reading goes from left to right.  They learn that letters make words, words make sentences and sentences makes stories. As children memorize these stories through repetition, they begin to understand that story sequencing is important; what happens first, second… and finally last, matters. | Here are the words/lyrics to our rhymes for May.

My Mother is a Baker

My mother is a baker, a baker, a baker.
My mother is a baker.
She always goes like this, “Yum! Yum!”

My father is a trashman, a trashman, a trashman.
My father is a trash man.
He always goes like this, “Pee Yew.”

My sister is a singer… …”La ta de da, and a toodley doo.”
My brother is a cowboy… …”Yee haw!”
My doggie is a licker… …”Slurp, slurp.”
My kitty is a scratcher… …”Hssss.”
My baby is a whiner… …”Waaaa.”
My grandpa is an engineer… …”Toot, toot.”

Pop Goes the Weasel

Half a pound of tuppenny rice,
Half a pound of treacle.
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.
Up and down the City road,
In and out the Eagle,
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.

Other lyrics

A penny for a spool of thread,
A penny for a needle.
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses
and all the King’s men
couldn’t put Humpty together again!

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

1, 2, Buckle my shoe. 3, 4 Shut the door. 5, 6 Pick up sticks. 7, 8 Lay them straight. 9, 10 A big fat hen!
