Nursery Rhyme Worksheets and Coloring Pages
Welcome to tlsbooks.com. This page features a variety of classic nursery rhymes, worksheets, coloring pages, and poems to print.
The poems and rhymes offered here are great for shared reading activities. Encourage your students to listen for the rhyming words and pay attention to the rhythm of the poem. Students should be encouraged to ask about the meaning of unfamiliar words and should be able to verbalize what the poem or nursery rhyme is about.
Nursery rhyme pages could be used as a supplement in the classroom or printed and bound into a mini nursery rhyme book. Most of the nursery rhymes were obtained from older manuscripts and for the most part they have been left as they were originally written.
