poetry, rhymes and songs

poetry, rhymes and songs are a part of montessori oral language lessons: “Children will gain a clarity in speech, a large expansion of vocabulary, a familiarity in various aspects of language such as correct usage of the language, artistic expression, a large range of language, awareness of the language structure, and most importantly an appreciation and enjoyment of language. Through all of the Exercises, the child is also being indirectly prepared for the written language work of creative writing and later, total reading.”
quote from infomontessori.com

i found this pretty comprehensive site
that features
“lyrics and words for children’s nursery rhymes and songs”.
along with the words there is music and sometimes even video
for many of the songs
with lots of categories to choose from:
activity songs, religious songs, to work songs.
