Nursery Rhymes (Hush, Little Baby)

Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won't pull,
Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town

Shared Reading

Shared Reading

Shared Reading is an interactive reading experience that occurs when students
join in or share the reading of a big book or other enlarged text while guided and supported by a
teacher or other experienced reader. Students observe an expert reading the text with fluency
and expression. The text must be large enough for all the students to see clearly, so they can
share in the reading of the text. It is through Shared Reading that the reading process and
reading strategies that readers use are demonstrated. In Shared Reading, children participate in
reading, learn critical concepts of how print works, get the feel of learning and begin to perceive
themselves as readers (Fountas & Pinnell, 1996). Some of the benefits of Shared Reading:
• Allows students to enjoy materials that they may not be able to read on their own.
•  Ensures that all students feel successful by providing support to the entire group.
•  Students act as though they are reading.
•  Helps novice readers learn about the relationship between oral language and
printed language.
•  Assists students in learning where to look and/or focus their attention.
•  Supports students as they gain awareness of symbols and print conventions, while
constructing meaning from text read.
•  Assists students in making connections between background knowledge and new
•  Focuses on and helps develop concepts about print and phonemic connections.
•  Helps in teaching frequently used vocabulary.
•  Encourages prediction in reading.
•  Helps students develop a sense of story and increases comprehension.
