Little Bo Peep found her sheep and took it to school with her last Friday.
Boyd Christian School kindergarten teacher Amanda Burks has been teaching her students about rhyming and fictional characters the first nine weeks of school.
Burks asked her students to memorize their favorite nursery rhyme for school and to dress as the nursery rhyme character portrayed in the poems. The students then recited the rhyme in front of the class, their teacher and principal. Burks titled the event, Mother Goose is on the Loose.
Student Cydney Jane Perry said she dressed up as Little Bo Peep because she wanted to be able to take her sheep and a came to school with her.
“I have the students do some type of oral presentation every nine weeks,” said Burks. “Nursery rhyme day was wonderful. No one needed any help this year. And, everyone was in costume. They all did a great job.”
Principal Tabetha Sullens said, “I had the honor of being asked to watch them recite and I was amazed at their level of confidence in kindergarten. They were not nervous at all. I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of this fun day. There is truly a future drama star among them.”
 In addition to Little Bo Peep, characters present included the Itsy Bitsy Spider from the poem of the same name, Jack from “Jack and Jill,” the cow who jumped over the moon from “Hey Diddle Diddle,” and a frog from “Five Little Speckled Frogs.”
