When I choose the nursery rhymes for my ESL preschool lessons I always make sure they are nursery rhymes that let me dance a meaningfull choreography. This helps my pupils understand what the song is about.
Once we have worked enough on singing and dancing to the song, we always do a little task about it to have some extra fun.
The nursery rhymes I have included so far in my lesson plans are these:
1) I’M A LITTLE TEAPOT
2) TRAIN TO THE CITY
3) ONCE I SAW A LITTLE BIRD
4) PAT A CAKE
5) THIS IS THE WAY WE GO TO SCHOOL
6) WE ALL FALL DOWN
