-Add to your child’s collection of known nursery rhymes with a book like "My Very First Mother Goose" by Iona Opie and Rosemary Wells.
-Make the chanting of nursery rhymes a part of your daily routines. For example, chant “Rub a Dub Dub” during bath time, “Hickory Dickory Dock” while washing hands, and “Baa Baa Black Sheep” at bedtime.
Adjust for an older child
Have the older child chant the rhyme alone with missing words for the adult to substitute.
Adjust for a younger child
Chant the rhymes along with the child. Walk around the yard, on the sidewalk, or around the house clapping to the nursery rhyme.
