wee sing note purpleParent Tip: Memory and thinking skills Song: Wee Sing Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies or other nursery rhyme collections
• After your child has learned many nursery rhymes, play a memory game with him/her by leaving out words that he/she must say to complete the thought. Choose rhymes that your child would know best. Here are some examples:
    Little Bo Peep has lost her ?
    Little Boy Blue, come blow your ?
    Jack and Jill went up the ?
    Little Miss Muffet sat on her ?

• Then make the thought process a little more difficult. Instead of saying the rhyme exactly, form the thought differently. Here are some examples:

    When Little Boy Blue fell asleep, what animals were in the meadow?
    Where did Little Boy Blue fall asleep?
    What couldn’t Jack Sprat eat?
    What kind of pie did Little Jack Horner eat?
    Who picked pickled peppers?

• These games are fun to play in the car, at parties, or for a baby shower.
