There's a Wocket in My Pocket! - Dr. Seuss

This Dr. Suess book is one of my favorites! It is colorful and has some of the wildest words I have seen. This book is great for younger students because the rhyming and made-up words allow them to imagine what it might actually be. A great activity is to ask students to create the monsters in the book such as a Zamp and Wocket. Using art supplies students would create what they believe these creatures look like. This activity will incorporate art into the lesson and students will have a blast coming up with scary or crazy monsters! Students could also create monsters that live in their house and make up names for them. During shared reading when students hear a rhyme they could do a signal to let the teacher know they recognized the rhyme.
