Mary Had A Little Lamb, a traditional nursery rhyme done several ways as a reader, rebus reader, interactive book, lyric card, a sequencing activity, coloring page and conversation cards about pets!
♥ 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 Mary
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
★ Beginner readers
★ 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.
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 about pets. Mary has a pet lamb this is a good jumping up point to discuss pets.
