"Humpty Dumpty"

As my little ones would say... "You told a fib!"  Yes... time seems to escape me and this blog (which I actually love doing so much) seems to be on that list of things I never get to.  With that said, I think I'm just going to try to post "something" we do vs. a whole week of activities.  Flashing pictures is just so hard with this particular group and I "love" looking at pictures as they speak to me more than the words most of the time.

So here is a few of our "Humpty Dumpty" activities...

A long time ago I purchased "High Reach" curriculum... the time before I had a computer... telling how old I must be...ha, ha... so I used there wonderful teaching tool to go with "Humpty Dumpty".

Once the children knew the rhyme we acted out the rhyme by pretending to sit on a wall (a wall of piled pillows) and then of course falling off.

We sequenced the rhyme to help us remember the rhyme using this.  We also talked about what sequencing is and the kind of words we use when we sequence (first, next, last).

And of course we had to do some art work...
So we made this which I got the idea from here.

And we water-painted this which I got from here.

Which made a nice little bulletin board display in our daycare room.

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. What a fun way to explore Humpty Dumpty! He is currently my daughters favorite nursery rhyme, I'll have to try some of these activities with her.
