Nursery Rhyme Riddles Interactive Game: Nursery rhymes are so important in speech and language development. They also lay foundations for musical development in beat, meter, form, and expression.
This interactive game is a fun way to test how well your students know their nursery rhymes. You will need to be able to project this onto your board to play as a class. You can play it on a SMART board or by projecting it onto a screen, wall or dry erase board. If your board isn't smart, you will have to use your laptop or device to click through the game instead of having students touch the board.
How you play: Divide the class in teams or call on individual students come up. Depending on what you have in your classroom, you could use a Koosh ball on the SMARTboard, or manually click on the nursery rhyme clip art from your computer. Teacher can read the clue to the student/team. If they got it right, they click “yes” to get a “great job”. If they got it wrong, they click “no” to another page that says, “Oops! Try again!” Clicking on this page will take you back to the nursery rhyme clip art images, and it is the next team’s (or student’s) turn.
