Three Blind Mice

This nursery rhyme can be a great activity for your kids. In a way, you can keep reminding them about 'mice' being the plural for 'mouse' :) Show them this video and at the end of the lesson you can ask them to draw a poster of the mice.

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice
Three blind mice
See how they run
See how they run
They all ran after the farmer's wife
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife
Did you ever see such a sight in your life
As three blind mice
As three blind mice 

You can also have a sing-a-long session. Play any musical instruments and ask the kids to sing with you. I have guitar chords (easy one, trust me!) for this song. Will upload the chords later.
