I'M A LITTLE TEA POT

 

I'm a little teapot short and stout,

Here is my handle, here is my spout,

HUMPTY DUMPTY
 

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

THE CAT AND THE FIDDLE

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,

LITTLE MISS MUFFET 

 

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Importance of Nursery Rhymes

 

Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if a child knows eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best readers and spellers in their class by the time they are aged 7

I'm A Little Tea Pot

 

I'm a little teapot short and stout,

Here is my handle, here is my spout,

When I get all steamed up hear me shout,

Tip me over and pour me out.

Humpty Dumpty

 

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 Humpty together again.

 

The Cat and the Fiddle

 

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Little Miss Muffet

 

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

There came a big spider,

He sat down beside her.

And frightened Miss Muffet away!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

 

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

 

Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Mary Had a Little Lamb

 

Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule;
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned him out,
But still he lingered near,
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.

"What makes the lamb love Mary so?"
The eager children cried.
"Oh, Mary loves the lamb, you know,"
The teacher then replied.

Baa Baa Black Sheep

 

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

 

One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane
