I plug in nursery rhymes
whenever I can, so during our spring “egg theme” my young fives enjoy learning “Humpty Dumpty”
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
This is the 2nd in a series, so if you have a nursery rhyme
that you’d like me to design a “Rhyme Time” slider craft for, simply leave a note in the “Question” section, or e-mail me at: email@example.com
There are 2 Humpty Dumpty pattern options
to choose from.
Pick your favorite or give children a choice.
Students color the story elements
on the “slider strip” then cut & glue it together.
There are 2 “slider strip” options
As children pull on the end of the strip, the various pictures go through the “window” on the wall, to help them retell 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
to practice a variety of standards
So that you can quickly, and easily make an example, I’ve included full-color patterns.
After I read the nursery rhyme, we recite it together, using the picture prompts on my slider.
I have them guess which story element they think comes next, before I pull the picture through the “window”.
“Rhyme Time Sliders” are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension
For 2 more ways to check comprehension,
there's also a color, cut & glue “Let’s Sequence the Rhyme”
worksheet, as well as a “Here’s What Happened…”
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy “cracking up” with a Humpty slider craft.
