Nursery Rhyme Re-Writes {Synonym and Thesaurus Skills}
Nursery Rhymes are NOT just for the young ones anymore! This twist on those old rhymes that most students haven't heard anymore is a sure winner as an addition to your language arts program.

This packet will provide an engaging way for your students (struggling to advanced) to practice finding synonyms using a thesaurus. (These are both COMMON CORE ELA SKILLS! ELA-Language.4.5c and 5.5c)

With 12 different rhymes to work with, it is sure to be a hit with your class, and a unit you will find yourself using again and again to help teach those essential word choice skills.

I hope you enjoy using this engaging ELA packet as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Happy Creating,
