My Dr. Seuss attempt

This week for my writing center students are creating a rhyming book, just like Dr. Seuss.  So far it is with much success.  I am curious to see how my reluctant writers do, but they haven't been to the center yet.

Here is what I did.
I did give them rhymes but they don't have to use them.

The cover

I put the first rhyme... cat and they had to come up with the rhyming word.





The students love that they get to act like Dr. Seuss.  Also, I have a Cat and the Hat stuffed animal that I got at Kohl's and he sits at the table with them.

I hope this is something you can use too!

Some of my kiddos still have trouble with rhymes. I love the idea of this book and having it written by Dr. ________! =)

I have some rhyme *freebies* that I would love for you to come grab when you get the chance.
