Our spider unit is one of my students’ favorite October themes.
It’s a perfect time to plug in a few nursery rhymes like “Little Miss Muffet”.
My Y5s absolutely love doing hands-on craftivities to reinforce lessons; so I designed this quick, easy and fun “flip-the-flap” craft to help them recite the nursery rhyme.
There are 4 Little Miss Muffet “cover” options to choose from, along with their matching “backs”.
Pick your favorite or give children a choice.
As always, there are full color patterns so that teachers can quickly and easily make an example to share, as well as black & white options for students to color.
I’ve included background information on the nursery rhyme, along with a colorful anchor chart poster of the poem, which you can use to introduce your lesson.
Afterwards, share your sample to help explain what you want your students to do.
Children color and cut out the two squares then glue them back to back.
Attach the "spider strip" with a piece of Scotch tape, that "hinges" it to the top, so that you can flip the strip from the back to the front.
When everyone is done making their own, recite the rhyme as a whole group, using the manipulative.
Students begin the rhyme by showing the front square, where Miss Muffet is "eating her curds and whey". When they get to the part, "...the spider sat down beside her", children flip the spider to the front. For the last stanza, "...and frightened Miss Muffet away!" they turn their square over to reveal a scared Miss Muffet fleeing.
For further reinforcement, have children pick a partner and take turns sharing their “flipper” with each other.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled “rhyme time”.
