Product Description
I plug in nursery rhymes whenever I can, so during spring, when it’s raining and we’re studying stormy weather, my students also enjoy learning “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”, also described as an “Eensy Weensy Spider” too, so I've included both versions.

“Rhyme Time” sliders, are a quick, easy & fun way to help practice the “retelling & sequencing” a story standards. The hands-on manipulative helps students remember “what comes next”.

There are 2 “spider slider” (outside) pattern options to choose from.
Pick your favorite or give children a choice. One features a spider enclosed in a web frame, while the other is a water spout, which I run off on gray construction paper. Check out the PREVIEW to see examples.

Adding wiggle eyes to the spider, or silver glitter to the spout, creates some extra 3D pizzazz.

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

As children pull on the end of the strip, the various pictures go through the “window” on the spout, or underneath the spider, which helps them retell the nursery rhyme.

We “sing & slide” as a whole group activity, then students pick a partner and take turns sequencing & retelling the poem.

Besides the colorful anchor chart, 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 to share, I’ve included a full-color slider template, as well as the BW pattern for students.

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

For 2 more ways to check comprehension, I've included a color, cut & glue “Let’s Sequence the Rhyme” worksheet, as well as a “What Happened?" writing prompt.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy getting "caught in a web of learning", with a “spider slider” of their own.
