The children love them and there are so many different avenues you can take with the rhymes. One of my favorites to share with the children is "The 3 Little Kittens". The children find it so easy to relate to the young cats getting scolded by their mama for losing something. Please enjoy a sample packet that I made just for my readers to try out in their classroom that integrates math and literacy with the poem.
I have an article with more details of how I use this particular rhyme with my kinders coming out on Friday on the PreKandKSharing Blog that I author for. I will link it up as soon as it is released.
