The story lends itself nicely to working on rhyming and writing poetry. Additionally, the rich descriptive vocabulary is perfect for working on parts of speech.
I am always looking for ways to make things more fun. Domino games are always a hit and in this case it's rhyming dominoes for the win! Each domino has two words on it that do not rhyme, but somewhere in the stash of dominoes there is at least one, if not two, dominoes that will make a rhyming pair. Students take turns trying to be the first to use up all their dominoes. When finished they pick two of their favorite rhyming pairs and use them to try and write their own poem.
These centers also include two more activities for working with verbs and adjectives. They are both sorting activities. One has you sort the adjectives from the verbs, and the other has you sorting verbs into past and present tense. Both activities come with recording sheets and QR Codes so students can self check while still at the center!
Even though the temps were insanely high here in TX last weekend, I've got my eyes on winter. Bring on some snow, but only a little...just enough for a snowman!
