Home Learning | Circle Time at Home

"One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" is a nursery rhyme used to teach number recognition, counting skills, and language arts skills to young children. Rhyming helps young children learn about words, sounds, and language formation. Hearing and repeating rhymes helps children develop early literacy skills and is important for early brain development. Local educators present the rhyme in a variety of ways to include a focus on concepts of print and word, vocabulary, rhyming words, and counting.  Learn how to use American Sign Language to share the rhyme. Music and alphabet activities help to complete our Circle Time at Home!
