This collection of simple, repetitive raps has been created specifically to be enjoyed and remembered by very small children. Ideal for introducing the concept of steady beat and rhythm, this collection of over 30 rhymes is based on the things that appeal to younger learners such as monkeys, monsters, dinosaurs and jelly! The raps take an active approach beginning with larger whole body movements, which are often easier for young children and engage them more readily, then progress to tapping alternate knees and finally clapping hands. Suitable for use with small groups or individual learners, these rhymes will help to build beat competency – a foundation for strong gross and fine motor skills and early literacy. 38 pages, A4.
