Nursery rhymes make the perfect starting point for Phonological Awareness Skills. The rhyming makes it fun and so many language skills can be taught along with STEM fun.
Check out all the cool phonological awareness skills I teach with the cute nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty.
Retelling Humpy Dumpty Nursery Rhyme Activity
The students have to cut around the 4 rectangles then put the pictures in order from the beginning to the end!
It was so fun to see their faces when I say, “Your pictures shows all the kings horses and men couldn’t put Humpty together again, then Humpty sat on the wall, then Humpty fell off the wall!”
Then have the students point to the beginning, end, then middle of the story! Asking out of order had many students pointing to the wrong answer! This really works left and right which helps with reading and writing.
Check out the cute finished product! Headbands! Yeah!

I read and reread the poem many times with the students. This really helps with Word Awareness…one of the Phonological Awareness Skills needed as a basis for reading and writing. Then we create this anchor chart to focus on the way writing consists of sentences, words, and letters. We also talk about the spaces and punctuation.
