Humpty Dumpty

We have been working our way through Nursery Rhymes.  We have been using them for their rich vocabulary and to help us with rhyming words and other phonological awareness activities.  We took a time out on Friday to talk about the fact that the reason the King's horses and King's men couldn't put Humpty together again was because he was an egg!  To demonstrate we took a raw egg, drew some eyes, a nose and mouth and pretended it was Humpty.   As he fell and squashed, the children realized that the yolk came apart and the shell broke into many small pieces and that it would be hard to put him back together.  We added some glue, and then some tape and even some band aids, but just couldn't him back together!  Poor Humpty!
