Nursery Rhyme Week – Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

May 7, 2020 – At Home Learning

Share and Care is now “virtual” during our time apart. Each day of our learning is going to focus around a story and will have ideas for the following areas: literacy, math, art, helping at home, music and movement. We will also have an idea for a snack! At the end of each post we will include a daily Bible story and a link so you can get your Praise music jam on. If you tune in to our Facebook Live at 10am, you will also get a bonus idea for extra fun you can have in your very own living room!

Your teachers have been working on providing ideas for the nursery rhyme, Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

  • Baa, Baa, Black Sheep – this one has fun variations after the first verse.
  • The sheep in this rhyme are generous with their wool and share it with their neighbors. Think of one way that you can “brighten” a neighbor’s day. You could draw a picture, help with yardwork or deliver a baked good.
  • Today we are going to work on recognizing words as combinations of letters. Practice “reading” the nursery rhyme by pointing to each word as you say it. Here is a copy of today’s nursery rhyme if you don’t already have one.
  • See if you can find a stamper to use to create your own black sheep. With the addition of some black paint, you can use a cork, cotton ball, or thumb to make your own wooly friend. Here’s a white sheep for inspiration. Thanks, Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep for the example. If you don’t have paint, you could tear black paper to create a sheep also.
  • Cloud dough is an easy sensory activity that you can make using 2 ingredients! Use this fluffy dough to practice making your letters OR roll a dice and make that many “sheep” before rolling again. Woo Jr. has the recipe for this easy dough.
  • Do you like blackberries? They would make for a perfect Black Sheep snack. Thank you to Creative Kids Snacks for the inspiration.
