Circle Time at Home: "Humpty Dumpty"
Humpty Dumpty is a very popular nursery rhyme that is frequently used today to teach young children about the concept of rhyme. Humpty Dumpty is an egg that falls off a wall and cannot be put together again. It is believed that the phrase “humpty dumpty” originates from an eighteenth century slang term for a small clumsy person. A local educator first teaches the rhyme in a creative story format with a follow up activity that focuses on print and alphabet concepts. Fun with music and art help to complete our Circle Time at Home! Grades: Preschool and Kindergarten.
