Remember going to nursery school? (That’s preschool for those of you born after 1990.)
You basically spent the day playing, singing songs, eating snacks, and listening to stories. It was the highlight of my four-year-old existence. My nursery school was named “Shady Oaks”, which still makes me think of sitting under a giant oak tree and reading a storybook.
At nursery school, I heard Mother Goose rhymes almost everyday. And I still love them. They’re wonderful resources for helping preschoolers learn to memorize basic poetry, get introduced to rhyming, and more.
My four-year-old uses Starfall all the time. And guess what they do to cover poetry? They use Mother Goose rhymes too! Some things never go out-of-date.
Since Mother Goose rhymes are so short, they’re also good copywork practice for young children who are learning to form letters. And that’s why I put together this simple Mother Goose Rhyme Copywork pack, which is absolutely free!
Read on to get a copy for yourself! And be sure to check out my list of 100 memorable picture books for preschoolers if you’re looking for some wonderful stories to share with your four-year-old.

That’s it! If you’re like most homeschoolers, you’ve got a die-hard printer you love and reams upon reams of paper. Finding a pencil, though, might prove to be a challenge. 🙂
This pack includes the lyrics to three classic Mother Goose rhymes:
- Hey, Diddle, Diddle
- Hickory Dickory Dock
- and Humpty Dumpty
Each page has illustrations that go along with the stories, so they’re good storytelling exercises, especially for pre-readers. After reading each set of lyrics, see if your child can retell the story to you using the pictures as prompts.
The pack includes one page featuring traceable lyrics to each story and one page of blank lines so that kids can rewrite the lyrics on their own. There are six pages in all.
