A set of eight nursery rhyme cards which have been modified for a speaking activity.

Use these cards as a fun, open-ended speaking or drama activity to build confidence. The emphasis is on being playful with language as students explore rhyming words.

The cards are designed for use in small groups. Print and laminate several sets of the cards so that each group can work on the same rhyme simultaneously.

This teaching resource includes instructions and altered versions of the following rhymes/songs:

  • Humpty Dumpty
  • Little Miss Muffet
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • Little Bo Peep
  • It’s Raining, It’s Pouring
  • Twinkle, Twinkle
  • Five Little Ducks
  • Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
