Activity: Humpty Dumpty

I found this great idea on Dr. Jean’s page. We chanted the traditional nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty and then created new rhyming verses:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the King’s horses and all the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Dumpty together again.

farm – arm…
pie-eye…
bed-head…
etc.

Kids thought this was hilarious and we practiced our rhyming skills will getting the wiggles out!
