Nursery rhymes are a fantastic way to help the youngest learners connect with text, recognize rhyme and pattern, learn to identify letters and sounds, begin to read simple sight words and SO MUCH MORE! All while utilizing songs and poems that kiddos already know and love! In this special BUNDLED set, you'll find tons of terrific activities for 14 of the most popular nursery rhymes....posters, pocket chart materials, fill-in-the-blank pages, student poetry book, sequencing crowns, re-telling craftivities and puppet sticks! For a better look at what's included, just click on PREVIEW!
These posters can be printed full-size and displayed in your classroom. They can also be printed 2 or 4 to a page, cut out, laminated and hung on a binder ring.
Pocket Chart Materials:
For each nursery rhyme, you'll find a title strip, sentence strips and vocabulary cards, all perfectly sized to fit into a standard-sized pocket chart. They could also be displayed on a bulletin board or reference chart.
Fill-in-the-Blank Practice Pages:
Each page features a nursery rhyme with four missing words and a word bank. Students will read the poem to determine which words are missing. They can also get a little help by utilizing the vocabulary cards included in the pocket chart materials.
Student Poetry Book:
These simple pages feature the nursery rhyme at the top and a space for illustrating a picture at the bottom. Just copy the pages, along with the included book cover, and staple on the side. You could also use these pages individually and display them on your classroom bulletin board or place in a literacy center for students to complete independently.
Students will color and cut out all of the pieces, identify and glue on the pictures that show the sequence of events, and then (with a little help from an adult) adjust the size of their crown and staple the ends together. So simple and so cute!
Re-Telling Craftivities with Stick Puppets:
You'll find 14 story envelopes with word cards and stick puppets. Everything has been provided in both B/W and Color. Here are three terrific ways to use these materials....1). The youngest learners can use just the story envelope and stick puppets. 2). More advanced readers can use the word cards to build the nursery rhyme and re-tell the story using the stick puppets. 3). The materials can be prepped and laminated to use as a classroom Literacy Center.
