Love nursery rhymes? I also have a fun that is great for practicing nursery rhymes!
This K-3 library lesson will save you so much time! You will need to edit a few slides to add your school’s birthdays and daily/weekly agenda. You will also need to add the read-aloud(s) of your choice.
***Please note that this nursery rhymes library lesson is designed to complement a read-aloud. The actual read-aloud story comes from you! I cannot include a recorded read-aloud due to copyright restrictions.
