Let's celebrate Mother Goose day!

Do you know that May 1st is Mother Goose day?

Celebrate Mother Goose day at school or at home with these hands on activities:
Choose a nursery rhyme that is familiar to the children. Find the "pieces" needed to tell the story. Put them in a basket and put the words to the nursery rhyme or a brief outline of the story in it. These can be used independently by the children to recite the rhyme

Print worksheets for children to colour and decorate.

Pointing to a picture when it is mentioned in the rhyme helps to associate the picture and the sound of the word, also expanding the child's vocabulary.

Size characters from some nursery rhymes.

Colour and cut out the pictures of a nursery rhyme. Glue the pictures in order onto a sheet of construction paper or use them to make a mini book.

Seek out Mother Goose Rhymes which have finger play actions, and teach them to the children.

Miss Muffet is one of my favourite nursery rhyme. I made this filefolder to identify letter M

Little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
