Act Out the Rhyme
Materials: backpack, lamb headband.
Select one student to be “Mary” and another student to be the “lamb”. The student who is Mary can wear a backpack to show that she is on her way to school, the student who is the lamb 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.
