Flannel Friday: Rhyme Wheel

This prop was created by the amazing Melissa of Mel’s Desk and I…um, I kinda of ran with it.

I started using this rhyme wheel in my Pajama Storytimes as a way to teach nursery rhymes and songs in a participatory way. Since I didn’t want to buy hundreds of the cake circles, I instead laminated the rhyme/song and taped it to the cake circles. That way I can change them out depending on the day and the rhyme.

Pictured above, I have “Baa, Baa Black Sheep” and “Hey Diddle Diddle”. I’ve also made “Five Little Ducks” so far and then…well, I went and got a new job so I stopped temporarily.

The kids and parents really enjoyed these rhyme wheels and I’m glad that I got to teach them some of the nursery rhymes and songs that I grew up on!

I am hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!

    These are adorable! Did you make the clip art or find it somewhere?

    Neat! Great way to be smart on reusing the circles. Do you have the kids move the clothespin around as you say the rhyme, or do you share the rhyme and then do some I Spy questions at the end?
