Mother Goose School has spent the month of February celebrating its roots with a month full of Mother Goose rhymes. Throughout the month of February, the children recited rhymes, had discussions and created fingerplays and drama.

Mother Goose rhymes were first introduced in the mid 1700s and are still used today. Rhymes are a great tool for improving memory, developing rhythm and promoting language. The children and Mother Goose School have learned all about rhymes this past month and have developed their own.

Meanwhile, Mother Goose students also celebrated Valentine’s Day and President’s Day during February. Valentine’s Day saw teachers decorate classrooms, a cook prepare a special valentine’s treat and parents and children make cards together. The children signed their own cards for valentine’s bags. Though it seems like a small thing, the signing of cards helps children learn and practice writing their own names.

Mother Goose students also learned about Presidents’ Lincoln and Washington and how they helped the United States become a better union. The students also made crafts, such as the recreation of Lincoln’s log cabin using popsicle sticks.
