Ages 2-5

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

Naming and categorizing things can be fun for children of all ages. Help children make sense of their world by grouping things that go together, such as knives, forks, and spoons at a table.

- Lambert

Activity

Recite the rhyme, “Ladies, Knives, and Forks” and do the following fingerplay. Repeat the rhyme a few times, so that everyone will feel comfortable saying the words and doing the motions. As you begin to say the rhyme, put your hands together knuckle to knuckle.

Here are my lady’s knives and forks. (Open hands and show fingers)
Here is my lady’s table. (Turn hands over and show knuckles)
Here is my lady’s looking glass. (Face knuckles toward you)
And here is the baby’s cradle. (Sway hands back and forth)
