Nursery Rhymes and Nursery Rhyme Olympics!

Nursery Rhymes literacy and math activities unit and Nursery Rhyme Olympics for Kindergarten
When I taught Kindergarten, I would begin each year with a Nursery Rhyme theme.

I did this for many reasons. Most children came to school knowing a few of the rhymes, and this familiarity made them more comfortable- pretty important when beginning a new school year or even starting school for the first time.
I also love how Nursery Rhymes can be used to learn essential literacy and numeracy skills, such as rhyme, cause & effect, sequence of events, counting, and more!

I have created a set featuring 10 favorite Nursery Rhymes. 
Here's a sneak peek:
