Need an interesting way to review literary elements with your students? Nursery Rhymes are a great source of short stories that will give students many at-bats with a concept to help them on the way to mastery.
This product contains directions and printable materials for activities that cover plot, setting analysis, figurative language, point of view, theme, and summarizing. There is also a writing project where students expand a nursery rhyme into a narrative. The activities aim at all learners by using a variety of strategies involving drama, art, writing, kinesthetics, and student choice for differentiation.
Classroom-tested! My students really enjoyed learning the nursery rhymes--most of which were new to them or they had forgotten from their earlier years. These were great for the end of the year, both as review and for student engagement.
