Step 1: Transition Video
Gather Kids to the Circle
Begin circle time with "Make A Circle" by Super Simple Songs. Make A Circle is a great song for classroom management. Follow the simple directions that end with kids seated and ready for the next activity.
Set to the tune of the familiar nursery rhyme, London Bridge Is Falling Down, kids will be singing along in no time.
Step 2: Main Lesson
"Jack and Jill" Video
For the main lesson, we are using "Jack and Jill by InfoBells.
Jack and Jill Rhyme Lyrics:
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
Up got Jack, and home did trot
As fast as he could caper
He went to bed and bound his head
With vinegar and brown paper.
Step 3: Felt Board Activity
Use the "Jack and Jill" Felt Set with a felt board. Have the children engage in a felt story activity where they can use the felt pieces to retell the story.
