Reading and singing the Nursery Rhyme - Pat-A-Cake
Print or read from the screen the Nursery
Rhyme Poster - Pat-A-Cake. Visit this link for the finger
play demonstration and music
and lyrics to create excitement and motivation. Discuss the image with the
children. Ask them what do they see happening. Can they
recognize the baker? Make sure to do a finger/hand play
demonstration of the nursery rhyme first. Mimic placing the
cake inside an oven and patting the hand, tracing letter B in the
palm of the hand or the child's first name initial and say the
child's name in the rhyme text.
Repeat the rhyme slowly and the children can repeat by verse.
Children under 2 will benefit greatly from singing, using puppets,
stuffed animals, and/or finger plays with nursery rhymes.
This nursery rhyme is particularly effective for children to learn
the first letter of their name.
