Happy Mother Goose Day!
Mother Goose Day was on 5/1/12 so for storytime today I shared a bunch of rhymes with the kids and we talked about what a rhyme is.
I read the book: Once upon a Rhyme by Matt Mitter and then I read out of the following books different rhymes: Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose, Twinkle, twinkle, little star illustrated by Mandy Stanley.
Mother Goose , Walt Disney Classic Edition. and Out came the Sun by Heater Collins.
I had the kids do a finger play to Jack and Jill and then we did Hickory, Dickory Dock. We went through about 4 verses and then we went through the parts of the clock and made one on the board with flannel/laminated pieces. This led into our craft for the day.
I had the kids make clocks for their craft today. Very simple, cut color and paste. Here are the pictures. As always the kids do a great job.
