Nursery Rhyme Boxes - Exploring Mother Goose

Little Miss Muffet Book CoverNursery rhymes and fairy tales are often staples in preschool literature. If you're planning to study Mother Goose any time soon, here's a fantastic idea we found at The Virtual Vine for introducing and learning about nursery rhymes in the classroom. Try creating a nursery rhyme box!

The Box

First, you'll need to find a suitable container. Consider one of the following that can be easily decorated and stored.

  • Powdered laundry detergent box with handle
  • Shoebox
  • Plastic storage container

Next, fill the box with props that will help you introduce the rhyme to your kiddos. For instance, if studying Little Miss Muffet, create or purchase a puppet of Miss. Muffet {consider using Nursery Rhymes Puppets, Patterns & Props}, include a bowl and spoon, and add in a plastic spider. Also, be sure to include a poster of the rhyme and individual rhyme cards in each discovery box to help students to follow along as you tell the story!
