Three men in the tub,
And who do you think they be?
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick maker.
Turn them out,
Knaves all three!
It was my intention to post some of the activities we do and some ideas for activities we didn’t do for each nursery rhyme. Forgive me for being three weeks behind! I’m going to keep my thoughts pretty minimal until I catch up.
Where are the bees?
Hiding inside where nobody sees.
Watch as they come out of the hive!
1… 2… 3… 4… 5…
A draw-and-guess riddle
I have eyes, a nose, and whiskers. (Add eyes, a nose, and whiskers)
I squeak, but I don’t purr. (Draw a mouth)
I have a long thin tail. (Add a mouse tail)
I might live in your house! (Draw a house shape around the mouse)
I have two little ears. (Draw ears)
I’m small and furry–a mouse!
Since we’re just dipping our toes back into a rhythm, this isn’t as fleshed out as my circle times usually are. The theme is “Summer Creepy Crawlies and Creatures” to match the nursery rhymes we’ve chosen for this week and next.
Gathering Song (from Lisa Monet’s Circle Time CD)
Circle time, circle time,
Time for circle time!
Sing a song, bring along
A rhythm and a rhyme!
We start out singing Over in the Meadow. They like to act it out as we sing.
