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.
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.
