As a teacher, I often feel like the Old Woman living in a shoe. So many children, and sometimes I am so overwhelmed I don’t know what to do. That is why I love organized units ready to go. This series on nursery rhymes has been so much fun to make. I have made a wonderful unit for my store, but I also love finding things on the internet to go with the unit. I’ve done the research for you and found working links of great ideas to use in the classroom. I hope you enjoy these ideas while you wait for next week’s installment – Three Little Kittens Lost Their Mittens!
To start, I found some great books to go along with this unit. Look for them in your library, or you can click on the pictures below.
And here are some fun sites I found to use as well. Click on the picture to go to the site.
This free simple game allows children to hold up the cards at the correct time.
OK, ok, I know this one is waaaay too crafty for most of us (including me), but it is such a cute project! (The link is broken.)
And finally, a blog with instructions on how to tie your shoes.
Here is a parenting hack on teaching your children to tie their shoes. When my girls were in Kindergarten, they had no interest in learning how to tie their shoes. I, however, had a great interest in shoe tying. I was teaching first grade at my girls’ school. I told my students I would give a surprise to anyone who could teach my girls to tie their shoes. They learned by the next recess! There is something about peers teaching peers that we should look at more often!

There is also a cute counting PowerPoint ebook that comes with this unit. Check out Counting Children!
