Wocket Pocket Real and Nonsense Word Sort
After reading There’s A Wocket in My Pocket, this early reading and word sorting activity from ABCs of Literacy will help your child to practice identifying real and nonsense words.
Not only are Dr Seuss’s books entertaining and fun to read, but many of them can be used to teach things such as rhyming, parts of speech, and real and nonsense words.
Why is it important to use nonsense words with kids? They may just seem like silly, made-up words but nonsense words can help kids learn phonics skills such as encoding and decoding.
Fizzing Green Eggs Science Experiment
No, you can’t eat these fizzing green eggs, but they make a super fun preschool science project from Preschool Powol Packets that partners well with reading Dr Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham.
How do you make these fun green eggs? Simply mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 9 drops of green food colouring and a tablespoon of water. You should have a soft dough that holds together when you squeeze it, but falls apart if any extra pressure is added. Form the dough into four eggs, and place them in a foil tray or dish in a bed of white “egg whites” (baking soda).
Now, give them to your preschooler with a cup of vinegar and a dropper so they can make their own fizzy green eggs and develop their fine motor skills too!
