K is for King

K is for King.  A circle makes the King’s head.  Three golden triangles crown his brow.  Children can draw in his face, giving each his own charming character.  

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes often reference a king.  An example:

“Old King Cole was a merry old soul

And a merry old soul was he;

He called for his pipe, and he called for his bowl

And he called for his fiddlers three.

Every fiddler he had a fiddle,

And a very fine fiddle had he;

Oh there’s none so rare, as can compare

With King Cole and his fiddlers three.”

As an important part of the canon of children’s literature, nursery rhymes should be a regular part of a Preschool curriculum.  They also beneficially serve three year olds who often go through a phase of inappropriate word-play, finding joy in repeating bathroom words.  Reading the nursery rhymes gives children in this stage an appropriate outlet for their penchant for word-play.
