1-2-3 Come Do Some Nursery Rhyme Activities With Me

“Rhyme Time” story wheels, are a quick, easy & fun way to practice the “retelling & sequencing a story" standards.

I plug nursery rhymes in each month, when they fit in with whatever theme we're studying.

"Humpty Dumpty" is perfect for our spring egg unit, and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" goes well with our study of rainy spring weather.

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

Since both “itsy bitsy” & “eensy weensy” are popular ways to describe the spider, I’ve included both versions on the anchor chart, as well as the wheel covers.

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

Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.

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

For writing practice, have students complete the writing prompt worksheet, then color it.

Afterwards, they can share their work with the class.

You can use the color copy as a whole group activity with little ones.

"Story Sliders" are another way to practice these standards.

Pick your favorite or give children a choice. 

You could also do one as a whole group activity & use the other one as an independent center.

Students color the story elements on their “slider strip” then cut & glue it together.

As children pull on the end of the strip, the various pictures go through the “window”, which helps them retell the nursery rhyme.
