Monthly Rhyme - Little Miss Muffet

This month our featured nursery rhyme is Little Miss Muffet. Our students have engaged with the rhyme in a wide variety of ways! Activities have included learning to recite the rhyme, practicing sequencing events in a story, counting and sorting spiders and exploring emotions. The monthly rhyme is a launching pad for all activities and themes for the month.
