There's a WHAT is your pocket???

Can you guess what Seuss book we read today??? There's A Wocket in Your Pocket! was so much's what we made
 Inspired by Fun in First Grade's post we came up with our own animals to put in our pockets! Again we aren't very imaginative, things that are abstract are very hard for them to understand so we had an elephant, a bear, a ghost, and a pen in our pockets!! I tried very hard to get them to come up with something that rhymed but no such luck - they just looked at me like I was a crazy women and repeated "I have a bear in my pocket." So we went with it!

More good news, I have 403 followers!! That means another giveaway is in order! I will be unveiling the goods on Friday-I'm very excited about it - stay tuned!!


  1. At least they didn't say "There's a wallet in my pocket" or "There's a piece of lint in my pocket"...

    I'm on pins and needles....what's your giveaway? You might as well just call it a day and pass it my way...I'm winning all of them these days anyway!!!! HA!

  2. These are really cute pockets. It would be interesting to see if another class would come up with completely different items with the same lesson.

    Congrats on over 400 followers!! You have an amazing blog.

    Growing Up Teaching

  5. We did a very similar writing/drawing project yesterday. It is so hard for the kids to "invent" something new. We thought of animals and talked about how you could take parts of one animal (elephant trunk) and add them to another animal (cow) to create a brand new animal. That really helped my kids start thinking outside of the box. Then we generated a whole list of rhyming words with pocket so the class had several words to choose from. The kids loved it! I hope to post pics this weekend of all of the Seuss stuff going on in my room!
