  • "Easy to use and a student favorite!"

I plug in nursery rhymes whenever I can, so during our winter “mitten theme” my young fives enjoy learning “The Three Little Kittens”.

Since my storytelling sliders have been so popular, I decided to make “Rhyme Time” sliders, to help practice the “retelling & sequencing” a story standards, using favorite nursery rhymes.

There are 2 outside slider options to choose from. Pick your favorite or give children a choice.

Students color the story elements on the “slider strip” then cut and glue it together.

As they pull on the end of the “slider-strip” the various pictures go through the “window”, so that children can take turns retelling the nursery rhyme to a partner or reading buddy, then take their craftivity home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.

I introduce the lesson by reading the colorful, poster-poem (anchor chart) then share my completed "slider craft” with my students.

I’ve also included a BW version of the poem for students, so you can use it as a worksheet.

So that you can quickly, and easily make an example, I’ve included a full-color slider pattern.

After I read the nursery rhyme, we recite it together, using the picture prompts on my slider.

I have them guess which element of the rhyme they think comes next, before I pull the picture through the “window”.

“Rhyme Time Sliders” are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension.

There’s also a “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheet, as another way to check comprehension.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy "Rhyme Time" storytelling sliders as much as mine do.
