Nursery Rhyme Olympic Games

To wrap up our Nursery Rhyme unit, my students participated in Nursery Rhyme Olympic games.
 
Here is a run-down of the events they participated in:
 
MOTHER GOOSE WADDLE
 
Students had to hold a ball between their knees, then waddle around the chair. Then they had to waddle back to the line & pass it to the next person.
 
 
JACK BE NIMBLE CANDLESTICK JUMPING
I made a long line of candlesticks. Students ran & jumped over the candlesticks and then back again.
 
 
 
HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE SPOON RACE
Balancing a ball on their spoon, they had to go as quickly as they could around the chair & back to the line without dropping the ball.
 
 
TWINKLE LITTLE STAR LETTER SORT
The first person had to run up and find the 'A', set it aside, and go back. The next person had to find the 'B', and so on until they made a row from A to Z.
 
 
HUMPTY DUMPTY PUZZLE FIXING
The first person in each line had to put on a crown {as the king's horsemen}, then gallop {on their pretend horses} to a simple puzzle. They had to try to "put it back together again", then gallop back and pass the crown to the next person, until everyone had a turn.
 
 
MEDAL CEREMONY
Of course, the only way to cap off Olympic games is with an awards ceremony, where everyone received their gold medals.
The medals read 'Nursery Rhyme Olympic Champion'.

I use Mother Goose poems in my class also. This is a great way to remember them and get the students moving! Thanks for sharing!
