Two little bluebirds sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away Jack. Fly away Jill.
Come back Jack. Come back Jill.
Recently I have been working on circulating early literacy kits. One of the themes is nursery rhymes and I REALLY wanted to include this rhyme. To make it more fun, I expanded it a bit.
Two little purple birds
Two little yellow birds
Two little pink birds
Because these were circulating, I used puffy paint rather than googly eyes so I didn't create a choking hazard. I included a rhyme card with each set (content by me and design by our Community Relations person). In addition to the rhyme, I give suggestions to parents as to how to play with the rhyme. For example, instead of using Jack and Jill, use Brad and Bill.
