I’ve talked a lot about how important nursery rhymes are for young children. They are great ways to help with language development, They are also wonderful ways of connecting past generations with future generations. In addition to all of that, they are so fun! Many of us can remember the nursery rhymes we enjoyed when we were children, and many times, those are the ones we teach our children.

- they provide opportunities for interactive fun
I’ve been busy working on nursery rhyme sets for my store on teachers pay teachers. I am so excited to share my first project with you, a dramatic play set to go along with Baa, Baa Black Sheep! Dramatic play is a great way for children to use their imaginations, and also a great way for them to practice story telling.
The dramatic play set for Baa, Baa Black Sheep includes posters with the nursery rhyme, vocabulary cards, a “how to use” card, and shop supplies. To use the cards, you can print them on card stock, or heavy paper, then I recommend laminating them for durability.
Baa, Baa Black Sheep is one of my son’s favorite nursery rhymes. In fact, we included it in our quiet book I created a few years ago to entertain him on one of his first road trips. I’m going to be releasing more dramatic play nursery rhyme sets in the future, so be on the look out!
