Type: Lesson/Unit Plan


Students first learn to sing the song "A-Hunting We Will Go" with its original verses and several new verses that support rhyming concepts. Then they brainstorm pairs of rhyming words and create their own verses for the song. As a follow-up activity, students can create original verses using other simple rhyming songs as a framework.
