Onomatopoeia comes from the combination of two Greek words; one meaning “name” and the other meaning “I make.” Onomatopoeia is defined as “the name I make.” Because onomatopoeia is somewhat “unconventional” my students and I love creating pictures using ripped colored construction paper to create an object. Cut apart the table included and put each section in a hat or bag. Have students draw a slip. Rip and glue paper to the work mat, included to create the object. Write the name of the object and the onomatopoeia it creates. Add background with markers. I don’t encourage students to draw their object first as the unique picture is designed from the ripping of paper. It's fun to create the name I make!
