In Twaddlers this past week, we had so much fun learning more about our favorite nursery rhymes and acting them out!
We used cardboard blocks to make candlesticks in an obstacle course and jumped over them like Jack Be Nimble, Jack be Swift!
Jack Be Nimble
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over
We walked on a balance beam and tried not to fall off the wall like Humpty Dumpty did. We even blindfolded each other and pretended we were the Three Blind Mice!
Three Blind Mice
Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a sight in your life,
As three blind mice?
Our class created a raindrop sun catcher with tissue paper, a lamb with egg cartons and white yarn and glue, the Big Bad Wolf out of paper plates and glued pieces, and the Three Blind Mice with painted footprints.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
We also painted Humpty Dumpty, then cut him like a puzzle and put him back together again!
We sang songs “Mary Had A Little Lamb,” “The Old Man Was Snoring,” “Hickory Hickory Dock,” and many more.
We read books such as ‘The True Story of the Three Little Pigs’, ‘Humpty Dumpty: After the Fall’, ‘Mousequerade Ball: A Counting Tale’, ‘Nursery Rhymes Emergency!’ , and many more!
We also enjoyed Amazing Athletes, Kids’ MusicRound, and Water Play too. We had so much fun reading, singing, and acting out our favorite nursery rhymes and bringing them to life!
