Teaching with nursery rhymes...a mini unit FREEBIE!

I love teaching nursery rhymes to my students throughout the year.
The repetitive, rhyming text is easy enough that all the kids can chime in when we chant them.
And they really stick in your head!

My Nursery Rhymes Literacy and Math Centers have lots of activities and ideas for your students.
Click on the picture to check it out!


If you've been following me for a while now, you know how much I love my Literacy Center time.  And quite possibly the most favorite center during this time is Write the Room.  I don't know what it is but when you give a student a clipboard, fancy glasses, special pointers and anything theme-based, they LOVE it!
You can check out my NEW Write the Room Nursery Rhymes activity here.


If you own my Write the Room - The Complete Set be sure to go back to "My Purchases" and re-download it because I updated this file to include the Nursery Rhymes activity (as well as a few others I created this month).
There is a total of 35 Write the Room activities in the complete set!
All for less than half price if you were to purchase them individually!


I really wanted to have smaller posters of each nursery rhyme so that we I introduce one, students will be able to access the poster at a Poetry Centre or as part of a Write the Room activity.
So I created these posters, with follow-up worksheets which focus on rhyming text, beginning sounds, inquiry based questions, etc.
The clip art is adorable - all DJ Inkers!
If you use DJ Inkers clipart or fonts, I'd appreciate it if you clicked the DJ Inkers button on the top right hand side of my blog to link you through to their site.

You can click on the picture below to get your FREE mini-unit!


I know that some of you go back to school today....wishing you a great school year!
As for me, I am just about half way done summer vacation and don't start up again until September.
Hate me now, but you'll be laughing come May!

  10. Nice Article, So when you visit Good Playgroup In Chennai
    look to see if teachers smile and are generally encouraging of children. Look to see how the teachers interact with the other children in the classroom and if there seem to be strong connections between them. Also talk to parents at the school about their experience.

  11. Thanks for sharing rhymes. Nursery rhymes play an important role in a child's developing phonemic awareness. Helps a child to become aware of the individual sounds that make up words.
