Select one student to be the “black sheep”, one to be the master, and another to be the dame. The student who is the black sheep can wear the headband. As the children are acting out the rhyme have the whole class say the rhyme out loud with you. Continue acting out the rhyme until all students have had a turn to be one of the characters in the rhyme.
To make the headband you will need one sentence strip and two black pieces of paper cut into the shape of sheep ears. Glue the two pieces of black paper to the sentence strips and staple the two ends together to make a headband.
