Kindergarten Students Learn Lockdown Nursery Rhyme In Case Of School Shooting

This is the horrifying nursery rhyme American five-year-olds are taught to survive school shootings Poster of lockdown song in kindergarten classroom will break your heart

Five-year-olds in MA are being taught active shooter drills to the tune of children's lullaby "twinkle, twinkle little star".

A kindergarten teacher chose to teach her students about school shootings through poetry.

What are your thoughts on this poem hanging inside of a kindergarten classroom?

As school shootings happen at the rate of more than one a week on average (and that's just this year), schools across the country have been forced to do what they can to protect their kids from what often feels like an impending danger. Her post has been retweeted almost 18,000 times and received almost 40,000 likes and 1,800 comments.

The mother said, however, that she is happy to see the strong reaction to her tweet, which has since garnered more than 30,000 likes in one day.

A mother visiting the Somerville school posted an image of the poster Wednesday to Twitter. "Lockdown lockdown it's all done, now it's time to have some fun", the rhyme, which parents noted was to the tune of "twinkle, twinkle", read.

The ICC Appeals Chamber decided by majority to acquit Bemba Gombo from the charges of war crimes & crimes against humanity. He said Bemba would probably go to Belgium to meet with his family there before returning to Congo after he is released.


The mother of a five-year-old girl in the USA shared a picture of a rhyme that teaches toddlers how to prepare for a mass shooting.

"These are the things they unfortunately have to do", Cohen said.

Kindergarten-aged children are learning the alphabet, numbers, colours - and a nursery rhyme with instructions to survive school shootings in the United States.

"To be shocked by it is important", she told The Globe. "It is jarring - it's jarring for students, for educators and for families".

Following the overwhelming response to the tweet, Ms Cohen requested that people call their congressional representatives to advocate for gun reform or support organisations like gun safety advocacy group Everytown and Sandy Hook Promise.

Cohen and Somerville Public Schools declined to identify the school, according to The Associated Press, but district officials confirmed it was the work of one teacher and is not used across all of the city's schools.
