Our new reading series has plans for Nursery Rhymes the first two weeks of school. I really enjoy beginning the school year with Nursery Rhymes and creating Nursery Rhyme books. However, there has always been a lot of prep for me (craftivities) and I wanted to create something that showcased what the students could do and allow them to practice coloring, cutting, gluing and following directions. After spending several weeks thinking about it, this is what I came up with:
Each rhyme has page to copy. The students will color, cut and paste them on a piece of construction paper. I included different shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle) for variety. The packet with this and 14 other Nursery Rhymes along with 2 weeks of Nursery Rhyme centers can be found here.
I have also finished Journeys Units 1 and 2, they are bundled here and here. I sell the lessons individually, too.
