Nursery Rhyme Book Makeover!

I am linking up with Sparkling in Second Grade for TPT Seller Week One Make-Over Madness.  As usual I'm a little late to the party, but as my dear daddy used to say better late than never!  Hopefully, I will catch up to week two sooner than later.  :)
I would like to showcase my nursery rhyme theme pack entitled 'My Book of Nursery Rhymes'.  When I originally blogged about it HERE, I was inundated with requests for patterns so I put together a pack. 
I recently updated it to include more patterns for pages to add to the book.  I have to say this is probably my all time favorite theme to do with my littles.  Many haven't had much exposure to nursery rhymes, and for those who have it's a great reinforcer.  It's so exciting to watch them become engrossed, almost consumed by learning the rhymes.  When our book is finished they can virtually 'read' it from cover to cover by themselves.  Pretty exciting stuff, especially for preschool loves.

Here's a look at some of the new rhymes included in the pack and the sweet ones making them.

'Hey Diddle Diddle' 

I changed up the 'Humpty Dumpty' pattern for another option.  Students colored the brick wall {which can be difficult for some littles to stay within a confined space}
'Humpty Dumpty'
'There Was an Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe' was added.
'An additional 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' art activity was added.
An 'Itsy Bitsy Spider' Craftivity is also a new addition. (The patterns are similar but still a bit different than this page)
A different 'Jack Be Nimble' craft has also been added.
In addition to the crafts, which includes a small version of the nursery rhyme to glue onto the page, there are also different large nursery rhymes to glue onto the back of the page to double the rhymes in the book.  Here's an example:

My sweet ones couldn't get enough of their book.  :)
 My students LOVE it when we do a Nursery Rhyme theme.  I love it when I hear my sweet ones reciting nursery rhymes.  These patterns have been added to my pack, but the price has remained the same.   Click HERE or on the picture below to take you to my store.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
