Who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss? I think the most spectacular shrieks of the year came on Thursday when I read, There’s a Wocket in My Pocket, to my K/1 class. My students went wild over all the fantastic creatures with names that rhyme with every day household things, like the Ghair in the Chair, the Nink in the Sink. They were properly spooked by the Vug under the Rug who, let me tell you, has always made the hair stand up on my neck.
This book is not only perfect for beginning readers, this book is also a perfect read aloud for students ready to appreciate some good rhymes. One student, upon leaving, told me to be careful to check my shelf for a zelf and my book basket for a wasket. I dutifully checked everything before the student left; and, of course, jumped three feet in the air when I actually saw the zelf and then the wasket. That made him laugh!
Have fun with this one.
