So you think nursery rhymes are just for little kids? Think again!
Local poets Elizabeth Rees and Rosanne Singer will show kids in grades 3, 4 and 5 how to have fun with nursery rhymes during a four-program workshop. Dates for the programs in the workshop are all Tuesday evenings, from 7-8:30 p.m.: Nov. 10 and 17, and Dec. 1 and 8. Spaces are limited and registration is required.
To register, go to www.takomapark.info/library/registration.html or call us at 301-891-7259.
In the program, kids will learn some of the history behind the rhymes (for example, did you know that Mary, Mary Quite Contrary was a blood-thirsty queen?) Then they’ll get a chance to create your own poems based on the nursery rhymes. Maybe you’ll want to be the voice of Mary’s Little Lamb or describe what happened when Jack jumped over the candlestick. Participants will perform their poems during the final evening.
