These are activities that I do with this song:
Say the Poem: There are four different booklets, reader, rebus reader, rebus reader plus adapted pictures and a lyric page.
Sequence the Poem: This is a great poem to teach sequencing. I have included a sequence board ( First, Then, Last). I have also included a three-part sheet that can be cut apart to have the child put them in the correct sequence.
Coloring Page: Although you can do this activity at school I like to have it as homework which then becomes a nice family connection to what we are doing at school.
Conversation Cards: Have a conversation with Jack and Jill. The characters say something and the child has visual choices for responses. There is more than one choice to indicate that conversations don’t necessary have a prescribed script.
This is a favorite nursery rhyme:
The first part is appropriate for those children that are readers or it can be read to the child.
The second part has pictures and words in a rebus read
The third part has both the rebus read as well as a place for single pictures .
The fourth part has the nursery rhyme in a line by line poem.
The fifth part is a coloring page that the students can complete to take home and share the rhyme.
The sixth part is conversation cards.
I find that I have a variety of students that I work with and having the same story in several different editions help to support all my students. I store them in a folder then give each child the edition that is appropriate for them.
For this Nursery Rhyme, I have two different Jack and Jills.
I use this story for a variety of students from students
Preschool, kindergarten, and first graders as part of a poem choice
Fluency cases to practice smooth speech
Students who need visual supports including students on the autism spectrum, students with attention deficit, students with cognitive difficulties, and students with speech or language difficulties.
