Let's celebrate with a freebie!
Celebrate Mother Goose day at school or at home with these hands on activities:
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.
Print worksheets for children to colour and decorate.
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
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.
