It is Rhyme Time! We’ve been running with this series from March this year and learned 10 rhymes already!
This time we are learning ‘Little Miss Muffet’!
We “played” the rhyme with a dolly, the pipecleaner spider from our previous rhyme time post Incy Wincy Spider, a round pillow(which was the closest I could get to a tuffet) and a porridge bowl plus spoon.
My 2.5 year old son immediately went to find daddy(Ken)! So sweet how this shows you he feels safest with daddy. My daughter needed a bit more coaxing, but she did realize a hug could help Miss Muffet feel better!
Together with empathy, we also worked on some vocab. A tuffet and curds & whey are not words my kids are familiar with, but explained like this, they sure got it!
That whole day they were singing ‘Little Miss Muffet’!
Later I found my son playing again, and look, the spider caught the spoon!
