Here is a nursery rhyme that is not very well known:
ABC, tumble down D,
The cat’s in the cupboard
And can’t see me.
You can have a lot of fun changing different elements of this rhyme. Here are some suggestions:
- Think of different animals to use instead of the cat
- Think of different places for the animal to be instead of the cupboard – such as in the sink, under the chair, behind the curtain etc
- Use three different letters instead of ABC. They don’t even have to consecutive letters in the alphabet, just three letters your child knows
- Put your child’s name in the rhyme –he will think it is so funny to be in the cupboard!!
