Kids love Nursery Rhymes and the predictability of them.
The sense of humor they bring and the almost 'slap stick' comedy value adds to the engagement in language.
I have been playing around with several packs of Nursery Rhymes and will eventually bundle them, but at the moment they are in single packs.
This task is about reading the text and placing the missing words in the right spots.
I encourage crossing out of the words at the bottom, so they know which words are left to use.
This is my Jack and Jill pack.
This jigsaw task is about sequencing the rhyme.
Cut the pieces out - put them in the correct order before gluing - check and then glue.
Then add color.
This about adding Jack and Jill to the hill. The text at the bottom is to be read and I tick the words they know - and then we can work on the others in word work time.
This is another alternative to the sequencing of the text.
