|Of course, we start by reading as many Dr. Seuss books as possible the first few days. They love it right off the bat!|
|Who doesn't love Green Eggs and Ham?!|
|Wow! I read this one today and I always forget how tongue-tied I get! It's hard to be cool on this job.|
|Before I read each book I ask the children to listen for three different things in all Dr. Seuss books. He was famous for his nonsense words...what a great way to segue into seriously hitting nonsense word practice for DIBELS!|
|his Make-Believe characters...|
|and of course, his love of rhyming words!|
|I give each table a book we have already read and they work as a team (ok, they really TRY to work as a team) to find examples to fit into each of the three categories.|
|They take turns giving me examples for us to chart.|
We will continue to add to our charts as we read a new book each day until we fill up our charts. I am going to make a writing activity for them to complete that will coincide with the charts. I will post on this later. :)
|We are incorporating Dr. Seuss into our literacy centers. |
Hop on Pop is at Listening Center.
|In their Listening Journal, they will list a pair of rhyming words from the story and illustrate.|
|They may also get a white board and make their own rhyming sentences. She read "I like box" and "I like socks" to me.|
|A rhyming match-up game.|
|I buy these literacy games at Marshall's, Ross and TJ Maxx. I have never paid over $5.00 for one and I still see them there often.|
|These are the hats we will make to wear on Friday. |
Ms. Potts is a step ahead of the game!
|She used the fold-over flap book for their writing. The children wrote a fact about Harriet Tubman on each flap and illustrated it.|
|Lana Holzer's class completed a page on |
Garrett Morgan-the inventor of the stoplight.
|I also wanted to show Michele Potts' Flag page for their |
American Symbols book.
|The fact writing is fantastic!|
