Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes for SBWE

Mother Goose
Illustrated by Leonard Weisgard
From Childcraft, Volume 1, The Poems of Early Childhood (1954)

Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes words and music are great for emergent readers and they are fun to sing. Most of them are set to ancient tunes that can be funny, fascinating and beautiful.  The rhymes help kids (and ESOL students) learn vocabulary and grammar, hear the rhythms, and understand word patterns.  The tunes used for singing the rhymes can be useful setting new rhymes to music.  I’m always fascinated to discover how many rhymes use the same (or slightly altered) tune.  Children learn the songs quickly quickly and get a sense of confidence, mastery and community.  Since we all know the song for Hickory Dickory Dock, that is something we have in common.

This page contains a list of rhyme titles.  Titles with not hyperlink are ones that I still need to explore.  Titles in blue are hyperlinked to a post about that rhyme.  As I assemble posts about each rhyme, I will hyperlink the title to the post.  Each post will contain a host of information and resources for each rhyme, including sing-alongs, videos, recordings, illustrations and history.
