Bibbity Bobbity Boo Pocket Chart Activity
On the first day of school we sing the rhyme “Williby Wallaby Woo: An elephant sat on you! Williby Wallaby Wee: An elephant sat on me!” We pass a small stuffed elephant around our circle and “CHANGE” each child’s name by replacing the first letter with a W: Susie becomes Wusie & Justin becomes Wustin. The kids love it and it’s a great way to learn names!
Bibbity Bobbity Boo is exactly the same tune and idea! Just pass around a CREEPY SPIDER or TOUCH EACH CHILD’S HEAD WITH A MAGIC WAND instead of an elephant! Bibbity Bobbity Bennifer:A spider crawled on Jennifer! Bibbity Bobbity Boo: A spider crawled on you! My kids love it even more than Williby Wallaby Woo!
To add to the rhyme, I’ve created the BIBBITY BOBBITY POCKET CHART Rhyming Activity.
The Bibbity Bobbity words are printed on large rectangles that are ready to cut out and laminate! All you need to do is place them in your pocket chart and begin!
Every child in the group selects one or more of the 25 pictures. Begin reading the rhyme in your pocket chart, touching each word as you say it with a “reading wand” or MAGIC WAND!
“Bibbity Bobbity Boo! Can you find a.... “
The child that is holding the picture that rhymes with Boo, places it in the pocket chart and reads the rhyme again.
“Bibbity Bobbity Boo …. Can you find a.... shoe?”
Continue reading the rhyme until the pictures are gone! After modeling this activity, make it a center activity! My kids love to use a “magic wand” to track the text on the pocket chart.
For individual reading, PLASTIC or EDIBLE POINTY FINGERS are a favorite! Kids love to track text using these pointy fingers!
