This lesson was such fun AND the kids not only learnt new vocabulary and verbs they USED them too.
I demonstrated the verbs …to drip/ to blow/ to spread.
Then the children made their first painting ..a face.
We talked about the new colours we had made and the ‘spikey’ hair.
Then, in pairs, the children instructed each other to make a second picture. Here is one.
Language is musical.
Every language has a unique pattern and rhythm.
Reciting Nursery Rhymes helps you learn that pattern. It also helps pronounciation. This Spring I have mounted a special Nursery Rhyme Display outside my house (Jumble House) in Castel Rigone, Umbria to encourage local children to enjoy having fun learning and using English.
Look at this one :
Hickory Dickory Dock.
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one.
The mouse ran down.
Hickory Dickory Dock.
