About the celebration
The Rhyme Celebration is an annual event open to K-6 students whose teachers are members of CT-COLT. Its purpose is to promote children’s enthusiasm for studying world languages and cultures. The emphasis is on getting together and celebrating rhymes in many languages, not on competition.
Rhymes may include nursery rhymes, finger play, songs that rhyme, short rhyming games or tongue twisters. Most rhymes will be culturally traditional. Props, costumes, and body language are encouraged and should be related to the theme.
Any K-6 student enrolled in FLES, FLEX, ESOL, ASL, Bilingual, Immersion, Heritage, Language Camps and After School Language Programs from CT and beyond, are invited to participate in the CT COLT RHYME CELEBRATION.
