Every week Ava has to memorize a nursery rhyme and recite it to her teacher.

Some of them are HARD!! I'm freaking out at next week's rhyme. I have to memorize it myself in order to help her!

Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe,
And he called for his bowl,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Ev'ry fiddler had a fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he.
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Went the fiddlers three,
Oh there's none so rare
As can compare,
With King Cole and his fiddlers three.

Last week's was My Black Hen and I thought that was hard:

Hickety, pickety, my black hen,
She lays eggs for gentlemen;
Gentlemen come every day
To see what my black hen doth lay,
Sometimes nine and sometimes ten,
Hickety, pickety, my black hen.

Try using the Hap Palmer nursery rhymes cd. The old King Cole rhyme I know from heart from a cd I played for the boys over and over when they were young.

You can find many versions of the rhyme in song on YouTube.
That is really great that the teacher has the kids do that.

Their teacher had them read lots of nursery rhymes last month, they had to 'rate' the book and draw a picture or make a craft....but not memorize them. That would be super hard with some of them!

I was going to suggest something similar to Willow. When I'm trying to help the kids memorize something (even math problems), I set it to song. For some reason, the song helps it stick better.
