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.
