"The kids loved this!" "Finished project looked great."

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 wheels have been so popular, I decided to make “Rhyme Time” story wheels, to help practice the “retelling & sequencing” a story standards, using favorite nursery rhymes.

Teacher Comment:

“…this resource provided a quick, fun and easy way to retell the story. Thank you!"

Each packet contains background information on the nursery rhyme, along with a colorful anchor chart poster of the poem.

I’ve included a BW version for students, to help practice reading and whatever other skills you are working on.

For example, using this “worksheet” beginning readers can circle rhyming words, color words, number words, or other sight words.

Reinforce spelling by having children underline “silent e” words; 1, 2 or 3 syllable words; vowels, or long and short vowels etc.

There are full color patterns to use for an independent center, as well as a sample to share, plus a black and white pattern, so students can make their own.

When everyone is done with their “Rhyme Time Story Wheel”, take a moment to retell the rhyme as a whole group, by turning the wheels.

To reinforce the lesson further, encourage students to “show & share” their wheels with their family, retelling the rhyme once again. Can anyone recite it?

I also have my students pick a partner and take turns sharing their wheels with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.

This is a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension too.

Since the wheel is cut into 6 equal parts, if you’re studying fractions, be sure and take a teachable moment to review that vocabulary and information as well.

Teacher Comment:

  • "I absolutely love this nursery rhyme activity. My students loves the anchor charts and the retelling story wheel. I like how your activity covers all the story elements. Thanks for a great group of lessons."

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy the “turn & learn” craftivities as much as mine do.
