Oral Language texts

Nursery rhymes and fairytales:

I feel that traditional rhymes and stories are always a good place to start with oral language development—after all, they are part of an oral tradition that goes back thousands of years. These are just a few titles that might be particularly useful.

398.245 MAR The three little pigs (James Marshall—or any other traditional version of this story)
398.2452 TRI Trivizas, Eugene The three little wolves and the big bad pig (good story starter, as the original story is turned around in this version. Most well-known fairytales can be used in this way).

398.8 ADA Love to sing nursery rhymes (Linda Adamson--with singalong audio tape)

398.8 MIT Riddledy piggledy : a book of rhymes and riddles (Tony Mitton—riddles based on well-known nursery rhymes. The rhymes themselves are also included)

398.8 ONE One, two buckle my shoe (compiled by Anne Faundez--carers’ and teachers’ notes at the back. These rhymes have been selected for their interactive nature, as part of the ‘Start Talking’ series for juniors designed to promote oral language)

398.8 OUT Out came the sun : a day in nursery rhymes (Heather Collins)

398.8 STO The house that Jack built (William Stobbs—a good story-telling starter, as the basic pattern of this rhyme can be adapted into all kinds of different situations).

398.8 TAB Video of the above rhyme
