Five Little Ducks Storytelling Water Play

Having a special space for a child to sit when they want to calm down: keep a toy there, a ball to squeeze, a soft blanket… whatever you and your child feel is comforting. Over the past few weeks I adapted Five Little Ducks to incorporate their feelings and worked with PowToon to animate it. It's the first time I've used PowToon so there was plenty of experimenting going on! Today I want to share ideas around Nursery Rhymes - some I've written about before, and others are brand new.

Mr Exuberance loves long lists of words that rhyme and likes to say these with an adult. We have lots of favourite songs and nursery rhyme play activities coming up on the blog soon, so check back often or sign up for email updates to see all the posts! Vocabulary Painting: Instead of a paintbrush, let your little one paint with objects found in various Nursery Rhymes. The kids will dissolve into peals of laughter and free you up to get a few things done. At the end of the story, reunite all five ducklings on the flannel board or hold all ducks together.

Place Mommy Duck and the five little ducks (ducklings) felt board characters in number order on the felt board. Every preschool program should have a balance between outside free play and structured movement activities. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you'νе written.

The most popular duck rhyme has to be 5 Little Ducks went swimming one day (start with 3 for younger children!), this is a rhyme that varies everywhere it is sung but here is our version! With a child who is ready for more independence, you can have them hop down the duck line or scatter the ducks out of order and have the child jump on the ducks in the proper number order. When Baby Bean woke up she was drawn like a magnet to the tub and just loved shoving her arms in, grabbing at the ducks and splashing around. You can find all our nursery rhyme activities here You might also like to follow our Nursery Rhyme Time pinterest board, as I'm always pinning ideas that I love from around the web. At Discover and Learn Preschool outside play will always consist of free time and organized types of play or games.

If you have children who are learning to read, I do have one more fun nursery rhyme activity to share with you: My Nursery Rhyme Sentence Picture Match has 12 simple sentences and pictures for young readers to pair up. It makes a fun center activity, and there is a follow up worksheet included.

Five Little Ducks Flipbook with Interactive Pieces Attach the little ducks” with Velcro to the last page which shows throughout the story. To make our five little ducks pool noodle I used a sharp knife to cut five rings out of a recycled Pringle tin and tidied up the edges using scissors. This is a story of a mother duck who loses her five little ducks one by one and then finally getting them all back. This rhyme is so much fun because you're counting UP and not down, which is typical for counting rhymes. This nursery rhyme is done with appropriate hand gestures, then the preschool children can all run about after the last verse.
