One Of Our Favorite Nursery Rhymes, Humpty Dumpty, Is The Song of the Week!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the Kings horses and all the Kings men, couldn't put Humpty together again. 

This version of Humpty Dumpty from Cantata Learning is a folk song of one of the most well known English nursery rhyme traditions.  

It is one that we all learned as children and now we love teaching and singing it with our students too.   
And this week we are celebrating it as the Cantata Learning Song of the Week!  
On the blog, you will find a wonderful lesson plan to use with Humpty Dumpty.  

Teach students all about number ordering with this lesson about Humpty Dumpty and his many falls. Students will make their own Number Line Template as they practice their counting and ordering skills.  This lesson works great as an individual activity as well as small group or even a whole group project.  
 You can read and download the lesson plan in color or black and white from the post here.
Not only is the lesson a wonderful way to engage and teach your students using this book and song, the extensions included are amazing!

In this lesson plan, they have pulled together Music and Art, Language, and Technology Extensions to create a fun plan to have students create their own version of Humpty Dumpty using tools such as the LEGO Movie Maker App and Green Screen by Do Ink. 
The various Standards that are addressed in this lesson plan are included too. 
When using this book and song with your students in the classroom and library, you can stream the music and even download it here.   

The song is available on the CD in the back of the book.  
The sheet music and lyrics are included in the back of each book which will enhance these fun ways of enjoying Humpty Dumpty.
