  • GENERAL IDEAS FOR USING OUR NURSERY RHYMES, POEMS AND SONGS HERE

  • VIEW HOW OTHERS ARE USING THIS RESOURCE.. NURSERY RHYMES, POEMS AND SONGS PHOTO GALLERY

  • White out some of the words from the A4 copy to make up a cloze worksheet.

  • List all the different 'names' for 'Santa' from around the world.

  • List other words which rhyme with the rhyming words in this poem.

  • A really interesting activity to do with poems, is to change the words, for example, 'I was tucked in bed, pretending to sleep' could become - 'Vanessa was lying in bed, pretending to read'

  • This poem has a lovely message towards the end - emphasizing the gift of 'giving' - what ways could children 'give' to others at Christmas (not just gifts!)

  • Pop the large print copy onto coloured backing card, laminate and use as a class reading reference - again, circle sounds, letter patterns etc using whiteboard markers - we would learn a new poem/song/rhyme every 1-2 weeks.

  • Print out large print, sentence blocks and word blocks pages, and laminate.  Cut up the sentence and word blocks. Children put them back together correctly - great group time / literacy task activity.  Pop in a plastic zip-lock bag and place in Songs/Poems/Rhymes Box with other songs, poems and rhymes to rebuild.

  • Find phonic groupings within these Christmas carol lyrics to match with A5 Phonics Printable Cards

    There seems to be lots of online programs to teach maths (Stepping Stones, Mathletics, Maths Plus, Go Maths, iMaths, Emms & Jemms, IXL etc), but does anyone know an accredited online platform that teaches computer programming/coding for K-12 kids?
