Inking Thoughts: Rhymes

  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Drafting a Lil’ Fluff rhyme
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons, and the book they want to write about
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Using the image of Lil’ Fluff in the cup of hot chocolate, discuss a rhyming paragraph (what it sounds like, what words to use, what is Lil’ Fluff doing in the hot chocolate).
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill. Invite them to draft their version of Lil’ Fluff’s adventure (rhyming sentence; rhyming poem; rhyming paragraph).
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Lil’ Fluff ” creation. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
  • Those that get done early… ask them to illustrate a scene from their book.
