Create silly rhymes just like Dr. Seuss!
Kindergartners love making up silly rhymes! Use this book, based on a variety of Dr. Seuss literature, to give them the opportunity to make up rhymes by changing the beginning letter of a word several times on each page. Great practice if you have to administer the DIBELS test with the nonsense word section!
There are 9 different pages the children can create as a book to take home. Or use the pages as stand-alone projects to decorate your room for March 2! (Previously sold as Rhyme with Dr. Seuss)
We have added a rhyming journal which includes 15 pages of rhymes for you to choose from. On each page the children write rhyming words for the picture but they can think of silly ones too like zat for hat! This can be purchased separately here: My Journal of Silly Rhymes
Your students can create their own copy of Silly Rhymes!
Included are all the reproducible blackline masters, full directions, and a color photo page showing the completed pages of the book.
The children create a page a day, using the collage technique. The students follow directions to create the illustration out of construction paper. Included are the complete cutting directions for making circles and ovals from squares and rectangles by trimming off the corners. All you do is cut squares and rectangles on your paper cutter for the pages. The rest is up to the children! Very little teacher time for prepping and no patterns or tracers to create!
There is at least one word on each page for the students to write. We sound the word out together as a class and then the children can copy it from the board or try sounding it out themselves.
When we are finished with the book, we use it at our reading station in place of the published books from our reading program before sending the books home. The teacher's copy can be laminated and placed in the class library for the children to read over and over during the year. The children love using their own books and take great pride in them!
