Audio Single Song – Humpty Dumpty
— OR —
Time Signature: 6/8 Key: A Major
Humpty Dumpty is a well known English Nursery Rhyme, dated from the late 18th Century and the tune from 1870 in James William Elliott’s “National Nursery Rhymes and Nursery Songs.”
Like most traditional songs and rhymes, it’s origins are obscure and there are many theories about it’s original meaning.
It became popularized in the USA in a long running Broadway pantomime musical by Goerge L. Fox (1868 – 1869).
In Lewis Carroll’s 1871 book, “Through The Looking Glass” Humpty Dumpty was described, using literary allusion, as an egg.
With it’s strong 6/8 metre beat, it’s a perfect lap song for teaching and reinforcing the beat.
Parents can help kinesthetic learning, by bouncing their young children on knees, or holding and rocking them to the beat.
This popular song can also be used as a fingerplay and action song.
Teaching Points: 6/8 metre beat, fingerplay, action song, lap song, Nursery Rhyme.
