Introduction Hello there boys and girls! My name is Mother Goose! I am famous for telling stories to children! They are called Nursery Rhymes. So I hope you kids like to hear stories…Here’s one, Once upon a time… oh dear I can’t remember how my stories go! Do you think you could help me remember my beloved stories? Please go on an adventure with me to find them!
Task The task I need you to do is to create a Nursery Rhyme Book using different websites. Each boy and girl will receive a blank book and you will draw a picture of a certain rhyme at the top of a page in your books showing what is happening in the story and at the bottom of the page write down the words of the story. When you complete your books you can show your teacher and she will deliver them to me. This will definitely help me to remember my stories!
Process Although I am very forgetful I do remember a few of the titles of some of my stories! I just can’t remember the details of them. So to help you a little I have made a list of story titles of my nursery rhymes. If you follow the steps in order carefully you will be able to help me get my stories back! Students will work individually. Students with learning disabilities will be able to work with a partner. Good luck looking for the stories!
