Humpty Dumpty & Large Group

During Large Group this last week we did "Humpty Dumpty"

Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall
Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall
All the King's Horses and All the Kings Men
Couldn't Put Humpty Together Again

We built a wall and chanted the rhyme and then let Humpty fall. We 'experimented' to see how tall the wall had to be and talked about prepositions, finding that Humpty would only fall and break when he was 'on' the wall. 
Some of the Aftermath of Humpty Dumpty. Plastic wrap was used to protect the wall.
We had been learning about emotions last month so each student got to decide what kind of face they wanted on Humpty. Surprised, Scared and of course, Happy were some class favorites. During small group, we dyed eggs, measuring out everything for the homemade dye and experimenting with the different colors. Because our assistants are so creative, the cups of color ended up being filled with dish soap and straws. Although it was Work Time, the whole class by the end had joined in and we had colored bubbles everywhere!
