“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 char
t, 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
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.
