Nursery Rhymes Poetry Books for Kids {Plus a FREE Download!}

This FREE Nursery Rhymes poetry book printable will fit right in with the other activities and songs you are singing with your Preschool and Kindergarten students. Plus, it reinforces high frequency words as well!Today I want to show you how to reinforce high frequency words during your Nursery Rhymes unit by using Poetry Books. Nursery Rhymes are one of my favorite things to teach Preschool & Kindergarten littles.

For each Nursery Rhyme I teach, I put up a poster that matches the poetry book page we're using (which I'm going to show you in just a bit). Before you know it, our wall is lined with all kinds of fun Nursery Rhymes that we've learned. I  print them on card stock and use your Scotch laminator (aren't they the best?!) to laminate them so that they stay in good shape throughout the year. Need more laminating pouches? Great deal HERE.


We also like to watch Cool School's Nursery Rhyme videos on YouTube. If you've never seen these before, then you just have to check them out! Seriously, stop everything you are doing and watch one right now! I promise you'll be entertained. The kids are usually giggling like crazy over these "silly videos."

Ok, let's get to those Poetry Books now. After I show you what they're all about, I'm going to give you a link to a FREE DOWNLOAD!

Each time I teach a Nursery Rhyme, I focus on a specific high frequency word. And we collect all of the rhymes together in Poetry Books. We use spiral bound notebooks (but you can use composition books too!) and glue each of the pages in. You could also simply staple all the pages together prior to using them all, or you could even use the 3-prong folders (get the high gloss & laminated finish ones) & a 3-hole punch to add them into a folder Poetry Book.

Every time we learn a rhyme, I give each student a black/white version of the poster. But the one I give them is slightly different in that it has blank lines for writing in whatever high frequency word belongs with the rhyme that we are working on.

Students write the word in every blank. Then we "butter" all of the words we wrote with our super fun Crayola Twistables. (If you want to make it scent-a-licious, use the Mr. Sketch twistable crayons!  The kids' favorite is always "Stinky Cheese," haha!

We also "butter" the word at the top right of the page. Then we practice reading it together a few times.

Next, it's time to put our page into our Poetry Books! First we cut the solid line around the poem. Then we glue it in the next page of our notebook.

After that, it's practice time! Students read to themselves, to their friends, to a plant or class pet, and every so often they take the notebook home and read to their parents!

And in just a second I'm going to give you that FREE DOWNLOAD I mentioned earlier which will give you an opportunity to print out some of the nursery rhymes poetry book pages and try them out. Let me show you the various versions of each rhyme that are included. 

For each Nursery Rhyme, there are four printouts. Two are black/white student versions and two are colorful. Of those, one has lines to fill-in high frequency words and the other does not. 

Two sets of labels (2x4 layout) are also included for the outside of your notebook. And a cover/title page is included in case you'd rather have that to use. 

There are 27 Nursery Rhymes that you can print. 
Here is a list of them:
