Star Light, Star Bright: Whole-Language Activities with Nursery Rhymes.
Neiderman, Beth Rose; Kuhn, Jean Naples
This book, which uses nursery rhymes as its literature base, represents a non-threatening approach to beginning reading for children in kindergarten through grade 3. The book uses a variety of cross-curricular activities which are built around four familiar nursery rhymes. The book's introduction describes how each rhyme may be used over a 5-day period, offers suggestions for developing additional units using any nursery rhyme, and includes an index of the skills taught in each activity. Useful background information is provided with each unit, along with descriptions of the activities and the concepts they develop. Blackline masters for the activities are included at the end of each unit. An appendix offers additional rhyme activities; scheduling, evaluation, and record-keeping tips; and sample letters to parents. (NKA)
