Working on Rhyming Words

Today we cooked green eggs and ham in honor of Dr. Seuss.  Yes, I know his birthday was March 2nd.  We had a surprise day off yesterday due to the severe cold temperature and ice.  So, today ended up being Fat Tuesday and Green Eggs and Ham day all rolled in one.  We used this free printable from A to Z Teacher Stuff for our before and after pocket chart graphs.  The kids also enjoyed a word search that I printed from Seussville.  We watched Green Eggs and Ham on dvd.  The classic cartoon is available at this Amazon affiliate link:



Before the green egg activities, the kids took an assessment from our reading series.  I thought my students had a good understanding of rhyming words, but the format of this assessment confused a few of them.  So, I have created a printable in a similar format for practice.  You can print it HERE.

My students are also really enjoying Dr. Jean's Rime Time at the moment.  How can you go wrong with any song to the tune of the Addams Family?!  I "typed out" the lyrics so we know the words to say along with the CD.  Here's the Amazon affiliate link to the CD:



The lyrics are available at http://www.drjean.org, but they are condensed.  If you want to have words for your students to follow along, you will need to expand them.

Hugs,
Eilis
