I love bringing nursery rhymes into story time and one of my favorite is Baa Baa Black Sheep. There is so much you can do with it, from rhyming to talking about colors. This morning for story time, I made envelope puppets out of different colored sheep. If you have never made an envelope puppet before, seal the envelope and cut off the end 3 inches or so. You can make two puppets out of each envelope. For these, I used different colored die cut sheep and used double-sided tape to stick them to the envelope. While I could collect them back and reuse them, I like to send them home with the kids to retell the rhymes. They are cheap and easy to make so I don't mind losing them.
After I pass out the sheep, we say the rhyme using the different colors. For example:
Baa Baa Black Sheep, have you any wool?
Baa Baa Blue Sheep, have you any wool?
Baa Baa Red Sheep, have you any wool?
In this case, the kids who had each color held up their puppets as we told their verse.
