“Flicks ‘n Chops” by Julie Cahill with Teacher Notes

Leave a comment
The dish ran away with the spoon
The cow looked up at the moon
She mooooed unaware
That the spoon dished with flare
Stating: ‘plating that fast, gosh, beware!’
The dish winked back in delight
Abandoned the spoon’s mid-air flight
So the spoon flicked a fit; pulled up with a spit
And the cow turned to chops, in fright

Here is another copy of the quote by Mem Fox from Monday and a link underneath to famous Nursery Rhymes. How about this week you expose your students to Nursery Rhymes?  See who can memorise them quickly. Look at the rhyming patterns that are repeated in these old time favourites. If you can remember tell them your favourite as a child and Why?
Have fun exploring Nursery Rhymes

Way up high,
Over the rooftops,
Up in the sky!

And someone’s there!
An astronaut
Shot through the air,
He dared!
