Product Description
Hi,
I’m excited to bring you this cute product. It allows us to work smarter, not harder as it combines counting and the phonemic awareness skill of segmenting within nursery rhymes. This activity is a great game for a small group, or literacy center. It’s self-checking so can be used with little or no teacher interaction.

Nursery rhymes are as magical today as they were 50-100 years ago. They are a part of our literary heritage and are a wonderful way to develop phonological awareness, and oral language through rhyme, rhythm and alliteration.

Segmenting (separating) is a skill that is a precursor to blending (combining) sounds to form words. Research shows that teaching segmenting and blending should begin at the sentence level, move to the syllable level and finally to individual phonemes. Much practice at each level is recommended before students are really ready to blend sounds into words.

This activity is one that is at the sentence segmenting level. Many of my young students have a difficult time differentiating between letters, words and then sentences. This activity helps students with this skill.

Here, students are asked to first choose a nursery rhyme card for a nursery rhyme they already know. They repeat the entire rhyme, then they repeat just the first line while counting the number of words in that first line. Next, they get cubes or blocks and stack the number of blocks next to (or on) the card that matches the number of words in that first sentence. They turn the card over to see if they were correct.
