These four funny, 4-line verses will get children reading and laughing. Even reluctant readers will be drawn to these simple, punchy rhymes with their crazy scenarios and humorous punchlines. These four are part of a series (see my other pages – four rhymes a page). They support literacy in many aspects besides reading, such as listening skills, vocabulary, rhyme and rhythm awareness, and poetry. When children read out the rhymes, they also develop presentation and expressive speaking, building personal confidence and reading assurance too. The cheerful, funny rhymes inspire laughter and upbeat thinking, supporting mental wellbeing.
