Product Description
“Rhyme Time” story wheels, are a quick, easy & fun way to practice the “retelling & sequencing a story" standards.

The packet contains background information on the nursery rhyme, along with a colorful anchor chart poster of the poem.

I’ve included a BW version for students, to help practice reading and whatever other skills you are working on.

Since both “itsy bitsy” & “eensy weensy” are popular ways to describe the spider, I’ve included both versions on the anchor chart, as well as the wheel covers.

There are 3 outside wheel cover options, as well as 2 “pie wheels” with different graphics.
Choose your favorite, or give children a choice.

There are full color patterns to use for an independent center, as well as a sample to share, plus black & white patterns, so students can color and make their own.

When everyone is done with their “Rhyme Time Story Wheel”, take a moment to retell the nursery rhyme as a whole group, by turning the wheels.

To reinforce the lesson further, encourage students to “show & share” their wheels with their family, retelling the rhyme once again. Can anyone recite it?

I also have my students pick a partner and take turns sharing their wheels with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.
This is a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension too.

For writing practice, have students complete the writing prompt worksheet, then color it. Afterwards, they can share their work with the class.

There’s a full color template so you can quickly & easily make an example to share, or do as a whole group activity with little ones.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy “turning & learning” as much as mine do.
