    Centers and small group literacy activities based on favorite childhood poems and nursery rhymes - this is a HUGE bundle that will last the ENTIRE school year.

    Imagine having your literacy small groups and centers READY TO GO for the year!

    Here's How It Works:

    Every nursery rhyme set contains the SAME format featuring easy to follow routines and activities for your small groups and centers.

    Choose two, three, or ALL the activities and your week of literacy lessons is planned!

    Each individual nursery rhyme set includes:

    • Literacy Tasks – featuring Reading Foundational skills (matching initial sounds and encoding)

    • Retell Materials – using a mentor sentence from the nursery rhyme, includes colorful or black and white props

    • Shared Reading – several formats for whole or small group, plus resources for individual literacy centers

    • Sentence Builders – based on the mentor sentence, perfect for independent hands-on practice

    • Literacy Extensions – Handwriting pages and student mini-book

    • Organization tips and tools

    Please Note: these are suggestions - the materials are ready to "print and go" for these activities, however you may use them as YOU see fit in your classroom.
