I plug in nursery rhymes
whenever I can, so during our winter “mitten theme” my young fives enjoy learning “The Three Little Kittens”
Since my storytelling sliders
have been so popular, I decided to make “Rhyme Time” sliders, to help practice the “retelling & sequencing”
a story standards, using favorite nursery rhymes
This is the first in a series, so if you have a nursery rhyme
that you’d like me to design a “Rhyme Time” slider craft for, simply leave a note in the “Question” section, or e-mail me at: email@example.com
There are 2 outside slider options
to choose from. Pick your favorite or give children a choice.
Students color the story elements
on the “slider strip” then cut and glue it together.
As they pull on the end of the “slider-strip” the various pictures go through the “window”, so that children can take turns retelling the nursery rhyme
to a partner
or reading buddy
, then take their craftivity home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.
I introduce the lesson by reading the colorful, poster-poem
(anchor chart) then share my completed "slider craft” with my students.
I’ve also included a BW version of the poem for students, so you can use it as a worksheet
So that you can quickly, and easily make an example, I’ve included a full-color slider pattern.
After I read the nursery rhyme
, we recite it together, using the picture prompts on my slider.
I have them guess which element of the rhyme they think comes next, before I pull the picture through the “window”.
“Rhyme Time Sliders” are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension
There’s also a “Here’s What Happened…”
writing prompt worksheet
, as another way to check comprehension.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy "Rhyme Time" storytelling sliders as much as mine do.
