Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill

(extend hands flat, palms down, and climb them up)

To fetch a pail of water.

 

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

(one hand falls quickly into lap)

And Jill came tumbling after.

(other hand falls into lap)

 

Up got Jack and said to Jill,

(raise on hand and then the other)

As in his arms he caught her,

(cross arms and hug shoulders)

 

If you're not hurt, brush off the dirt,

(brush off clothes)

And then we'll fetch the water.

 

S-l-o-w-l-y, s-l-o-w-l-y, up the hill,

(climb hands slowly)

This time they spilled no water.

 

They took it home to Mother dear,

(close fist and carry pretend bucket)

who kissed her son and daughter!

(kissing sound)

 

Five Humpty Dumpty’s

Five Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

Five Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall. . . . crack!

There'll be four Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall!

 

Four Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

Four Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall. . . . crack!

There'll be three Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall!

 

Three Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

Three Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall. . . . crack!

There'll be two Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall!

 

Two Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

Two Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall. . . . crack!

There'll be one Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall!

 

One Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

One Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall,

And if one Humpty Dumpty should accidentally fall. . . . crack!

There'll be no Humpty Dumpty's sitting on a wall!

 

Once I Saw a Little Bird

Once I saw a little bird

Go hop, hop, hop.

And I cried, "Little bird,

Will you stop, stop, stop?"

 

I was going to the window

To say, "How do you do?"

When he shook his little tail

And away he flew.

 

The Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,

He had ten thousand men;

He marched them up to the top of the hill,

And he marched them down again.

 

And, when they were up they were up;

And when they were down they were down.

But when they were only halfway up,

They were neither up nor down.

Crafts: 


Jack and Jill 

Using paper cups, let the children decorate their own "Jack and Jill" water pails with stickers. Punch a hole on each side and attached a pipe cleaner handle. Place blue crepe paper, tissue paper, or colored cotton balls in them for "water". Glue Jack and Jill poem to front. 

 

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill,

To fetch a pail of water.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

 

Up got Jack and said to Jill,

As in his arms he caught her,

If you're not hurt, brush off the dirt,

And then we'll fetch the water.

 

S-l-o-w-l-y, s-l-o-w-l-y, up the hill,

This time they spilled no water.

They took it home to Mother dear,

who kissed her son and daughter

 

 

Old Mother Hubbard Cupboard

To prep kids for this craft, make sure you say the original nursery rhyme together, but then explain that if they had a dog, their cupboard would be full of dog bones. Then say the new rhyme, using your name or a child's name.

 

Take a piece of colored construction paper. Fold it so that the two ends fold inward towards the middle. (so it looks like you are opening a cabinet door). Give the children dog biscuit shapes to glue on the inner part of the paper. (This will look like dog bones inside the cabinet). Print the rhymes to paste to the front, along with an Accucut dog shape ("Dog sm"). Let kids fill in their name and "his/her", "he/she". Use buttons for door knobs.

Old Mother Hubbard 

Old Mother Hubbard

Went to the cupboard

To fetch her poor dog a bone.

But when she got there,

The cupboard was bare,

And so the poor dog had none.

 

______________________

Went to the cupboard,

To fetch ____ cute dog a bone.

And when ____ got there,

There were bones to spare,

And so every dog got one!
