PoetryRama: Exploring Drama through Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes.
Honeyghan, Glasceta
Florida Reading Quarterly, v36 n4 p15-20 Jun 2000
Drama through Mother Goose nursery rhymes can be integrated in the pre-K-3 curriculum. Activities can range from spontaneous gestures and facial expression, to guided performance where a teacher might have specific objectives in mind and rehearse a rhyme for formal performance. Activities include unison or choral speaking; "line-a-child" arrangement; refrain arrangement; and antiphonal or sound group arrangement. Many nursery rhymes can be read and dramatized for a few minutes during a regular class session with minimal coaching. These activities can make a significant contribution to children's expressive abilities. (Contains 21 references and numerous excerpts of nursery rhymes.) (RS)
