One of my favorite things to include in our homeschool preschool is nursery rhymes! Nursery rhymes are so fun for kids. If you think about it, you can probably recite several nursery rhymes with no problems that you learned as a young child. I like to focus on one nursery rhyme per week with my youngest kids. Our latest was Humpty Dumpty, and since my kids enjoy coloring, I decided to make this Humpy Dumpty Nursery Rhyme printable pack! It’s perfect for preschoolers or kindergartners.
Humpty Dumpty Nursery Rhyme Printable Pack
If you’re wondering how I teach nursery rhymes, I print out the color version of our nursery rhyme and keep it in my morning time binder. Each morning I pull out the sheet and say the nursery rhyme with the kids. It’s pretty simple and they quickly memorize it!
Later in the day, I let the kids color in any of the black and white sheets they would like to, and we also cut apart the mini-book and staple it together. They enjoy being able to “read” the book to me, because they know the rhyme from memory and the pictures help them determine what the page says.
The printable puppets are easy to cut out and glue on popsicle sticks. I bought my daughter a little puppet theater for my daughter’s birthday a few years ago, and they love to use that to put on plays for me. It’s fun to watch the kids reenact the nursery rhyme, and also to put their own spin on it!
I made these printable packs with the rhymes broken up in different ways. If you teach in a classroom, or if you’d just like to present the rhyme by line, there are letter sized sheets of each line of the nursery rhyme!
While I’m not super crazy about busy work, I did include a cut and paste sequencing page. This page is great for those fine motor skills for preschoolers and kindergartners, plus they can work on putting things in order!
And that’s it. This is such a simple way to teach nursery rhymes, but it’s also extremely effective. My kids love learning their nursery rhymes this way!
