This weekend I scooped up There's a Wocket in my Pocket from Target. Now my darlings love the book as much as I do! I created a fun response to the book last night. It's a freebie file!
I began the lesson discussing rhyming words. There's a great brainpopjr video on rhyming for building background. In the above freebie, I have images of a plane, bag, and a web. I glued the picture cards on chart paper. The kids called out various words real or nonsense that rhymed. Students quickly identified that changing the beginning sound created the funny rhyme.
After we charted for the three picture cards, I read There's a Wocket in My Pocket. We identified each of the words and the rhyming non-sense word used to name the creature.
For a fun response, I had the kids choose a classroom object. My students were asked to illustrate the object. In order to name their creature, they needed to come up with a fun rhyming non-sense name by replacing the beginning sound with another sound. My kinders were giggling throughout share chair.
