What educators are saying

This was so fun to use! The students were not that familiar with the nursery rhymes so they began seeking them out in the library. The teachers enjoyed playing along, too.
What a fun game! I look forward to using this with the storytime you created. (Just a thought: I'd like to see more games that are skill focused like main idea, text features, inferencing, etc...)

Worried this game might not be compatible with your version of PowerPoint or Keynote? You can test a similar game by clicking on the bundle and downloading the bundle preview. The preview is a shortened version of one of my PPT games. If it plays properly in the preview version, it is compatible with your computer.


  • Recommended for: K-2
  • Formats: PowerPoint (2016 or later is preferred–the numbers on the game board may not disappear if you are on an older version of PowerPoint)
  • Editable: YES, all text is editable
  • NOTE ABOUT GOOGLE SLIDES: A Google Slides version is NOT INCLUDED in this product. If you choose to upload it to Google Slides, know that the game board numbers will not disappear when clicked in Google Slides like they do in PowerPoint. Since this feature is essential to smooth game play, I do not provide a Google Slides version of this game.


  • 1 interactive PowerPoint game (77 slides + 2 slides of teacher instructions)
  • separate, printable editable list of the 25 nursery rhymes included in the game (1 page)
  • separate PDF of teacher directions for game play (1 page)


  • Includes 25 nursery rhymes–each rhyme includes a question slide, the nursery rhyme slide, and an answer slide (77 total slides)
  • Students choose from 5 categories: Little, Animals, Old, Names, and Extras
  • All text editable. Artwork has been locked down to secure copyrighted material.
  • Point amounts for each question disappear after the question is selected. This ensures students do not select the same question twice. For example, if a student selects “Old for 3 points,” the question will be revealed. Upon return to the game board, the “Old for 3 points” square will no longer be visible (this does not work if you upload the PPT to Google Slides)
  • Every slide has adorable clipart to go with it.
