On Friday Mother Goose visited Pre-K for their Nursery Rhyme Party! Each student took turns reciting their own nursery rhyme from memory - earning themselves a badge into the Mother Goose Club! Then Mother Goose led the class outdoors to play silly games! There was the Itsy Bitsy Spider chase, Humpty Dumpty Egg Race and Egg Toss, a Jack Be Nimble jumping contest and the Jack and Jill Water Bucket races! When we came inside, Mother Goose had left us some muffins from Little Miss Muffet, and cheese sticks from the Hickory Dickory Doc mice!
