Ready to Learn: Nursery Rhymes!

At the Aspire Parenting Class last week, Janae Moss led a discussion about temper tantrums. The parents came up with some great solutions for what to do when child is acting out. One I'd never heard before was "put the toy in time out instead of the child".  Check out Help me Grow's blog for more great ideas on how to deal with your kid's tantrums!

After the Aspire Parent Group, we had our Ready to Learn class.  In the month of July, Stephanie Anderson introduced an activity involving nursery rhymes. After the class, several moms came up to her and asked where to find rhymes to teach their children.  So this month for the Ready to Learn class, we reviewed some favorites...  

Here are a couple examples:

Five Little Monkeys


Five little monkeys jumping on the bed;
One fell off and bumped his head.
Momma called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Four little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head.
Momma called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head.
(you know what happens next...)

Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down.

Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck two,
And down he flew.
