Highlights of the week 28th Jan – 1st Feb

Circle Time:

Revision of the rhymes done till date.

Introduction of rhyme :

There once lived a cobbler, and he was wee,

He lived in a hole, of a very big tree,

He had a good neighbor, and she was a mouse,

She did his wee washing, and tidied his house,

Each morning at seven, he heard a wee tap,

And in came the mouse, with her apron and cap.

She lit a small fire, and fetched a wee broom,

She swept and she polished, his wee little room.

To take any wages, she always refused,

So the cobbler said “thank you”, and mended her shoes.

Source- Steiner rhyme
