toddler time: know your nursery rhymes

Our theme for Toddler Time today was NURSERY RHYMES! 

Mystery Box: When we opened the yellow box, we found a star!
We passed out little foamie stars and sang:




Hold your stars up high
Hold your stars down low
Hold your star & turn around
Hold your stars up high
Hold your stars down low
Put your star on the ground.





Books We Read:
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star- Cabrera
Humpty Dumpty - Lewis
Old Mother Hubbard- Cabrera


Cute Nursery Rhyme Fingerplays & Songs:

Peas in the Pot 
One little pea jumped into the pot, 
And waited for the soup to get hot. 

A second little pea jumped into the pot, 
And waited for the soup to get hot. 

A third little pea jumped into the pot, 
And waited for the soup to get hot. 

Finally, the soup got so hot. 
All the little peas jumped out of the pot! 



Little Bo Peep 
Little _______ Peep, count your sheep. 
“I’ve lost ________ sheep.” 
Who is missing? 


Star Light, Star Bright Game 
Star light, star bright, 
Shining far and near, 
Won’t you please shine on me? 
Shine your light right here! 

Shine a flashlight on objects for the kids to name, or tell you the sound that the object begins with, color of the object, etc…

All rhymes above were found here



Flannel Story: Hickory Dickory Dock




We said the classic rhyme as we put the clip art on the board. Clip art is from Etsy.


Flannel Story #2: Five Humpty Dumpties (see link above)




Five Humpty Dumpties 
Five Humpty Dumpties, 
And not one more; 
One dropped to the ground, 
And then there were four. 

Four Humpty Dumpties, 
Cute as they could be; 
One did a flip-flop, 
And then there were three. 

Three Humpty Dumpties, 
Just a lonely few; 
Down went another one, 
And then there were two. 

Two Humpty Dumpties, 
Sat in the sun; 
One fell down, 
And then there was one. 

One Humpty Dumpty, 
A real egghead hero; 
He took a mighty fall; 
And then there were zero!  





Craft #1: Humpty Dumpty Finger Puppets
Printable craft found here.


Craft #2: Dish & Spoon

LOVE this one! I found this amazing idea here & there’s even a template for the spoon.
Use a paper plate for the dish & cut out spoons. Decorate with sticky eyes & attach legs for a fun & easy craft!
