Hey Diddle, Diddle Flipbook {Freebie}

I hope you have had a wonderful start back to school after Winter Break!  Overall, my new year has been going really well.  Last week, my school had a fire drill during Kindergarten lunch.  My class rocked it out!  It didn't even phase them to go to a different spot outside.  Proud teacher moment, for sure!

I want to share an activity that my Kinders completed last week.  Do you use nursery rhymes in your classroom?  Each week my bestie and I pick a nursery rhyme to focus on.  We use it to identify popcorn words, rhyming words, and to work on reading fluently with one-to-one correspondence.  On Friday, we put the nursery rhyme into our poetry journals and usually do a fun activity to go with it.  Well, two weeks ago our nursery rhyme was Hey Diddle, Diddle.  We started this project on Friday before the three day weekend, and finished it up last Tuesday {It took a smidge more time than we had planned for - oops!}

I love making flipbooks with my students!  Oddly, we hadn't made one yet this school year.  So, off I went to prepare a fun flipbook to go with Hey Diddle, Diddle.  First I folded a 12 X 18 sheet of construction paper lengthwise, measured out four sections of 4.5 inches each, and drew lines with my sharpie.  I then made copies of the nursery rhyme and matching pictures.


Each student was given a prepared piece of construction paper, a copy of the nursery rhyme, and a copy of the pictures.  The students first cut on the black line to make the flaps for their books.  They then colored the frames and pictures.  Once the frames and pictures were colored, the students cut them out and put them in order with the nursery rhyme on top of the flap and the picture under the flap.






I was so pleased with how they turned out!  They look great out our bulletin board in the hallway!

I would love to hear what kind of activities you do in your classroom with nursery rhymes!  Thanks for stopping by!
