Our Dr. Seuss activity today goes along with the book, There’s a Wocket in my Pocket. After reading this book, you can either have students make these pockets or you can make them prior to the lesson. I just folded a 12×9 piece of light blue construction paper in half and cut out a pocket shape. Then you staple around the bottom and sides, leaving the top open.
These can be used for numerous things. You could write a word on a pocket and students have to write rhyming words and place them in the pockets, you could do certain vowel patterns on each pocket and place words inside the pockets, write a number on each pocket and have students find number sentences to place inside the pocket…
I have provided a 5 page download with short & long vowel word cards. You can make a pocket for each vowel sound and students can place the word cards into the correct pocket.
I’d love to hear if you have any other great ideas for using these 🙂
I lvoe all of these ideas! I featured your Dr. Seuss writing ideas on my blog today. Come check it out!
Oh and even though I am a first grade teacher, I really do know how to spell the word love. haha
I love this! Thanks so much for sharing. I have also seen it where they put two rhyming words together. You do great work!
You have great ideas! Thanks so much for sharing them!
Great idea! I will be using the "Pocket" to put "P" words in for my PreK4 class! Thank you!
I love the pockets! Now I just have to decide what to put in them – I love the number sentence idea!
You have wonderful ideas!! This is my first official day of looking around and I'm trying to soak it all in! I could really get addicted to blogging!!
This must go in my Dr. Seuss unit. Thank you for the great ideas.
I also think it would be cute to have kids create their own wocket in the pocket
