What are you doing right now?... Counting Down to Christmas and remembering how magical it can be. Being a child during Christmas and believing anything is possible. Relax and don't forget to laugh this Christmas! :)
Rhyming has long been used as a tool to teach and delight children. In fact, the Center For Early Literacy Learning found that in 12 studies of 5,299 preschoolers, "young children’s ability to recite familiar nursery rhymes was both directly and indirectly related to later literacy and language abilities." How do you use rhymes in your classroom?
I think this poem is my favorite because it copies the rhythm and several words from the song "Teapot" and so, if the readers are familiar with such a song, they will relate the poem to it. This is why I found this poem so interesting.
