The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

Humpty Dumpty:

A poor little egg and a lesson in rhyme and rhythm 

I love teaching the classics to the boys and one that I found a great set of materials for, was this story of the poor egg who sat on the wall (probably against his mother's wishes) and fell and broke to pieces.

Together we learned 

  • how to memorize a poem
  • rhythm by using rhythm sticks while we read the poem aloud
  • rhyming words 
*The materials were from Kizclub and it even comes with a black and white set for your own little poet to color.
