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!
