Nine complete nursery rhymes and nine cloze nursery rhymes to aide in teaching print direction, one-to-one matching, and rhyming. - Use these rhymes as a projectable-whole class activity, or print out to use during guided reading groups.
- First, read the complete rhyme as a whole class to familiarize the students with the nursery rhyme, one-to-one matching, and to teach the meaning of a rhyme. Then have students try to complete the cloze rhymes.
- This activity targets the following Common Core State Standards:
RL.K.10., RI.K.10., RF.K.1., RF.K.2., and RF.K.3.
