This is a rhyming activity and class book you can make based on Fox in Socks. It can be done with a large group and have each child make one page or with a small group and have each child made 2-3 pages.
You will need pictures of animals and pictures of clothing. Talk about the book and fox wearing clothing on the cover. Show children pictures of the animals. Can they think of a piece of clothing that rhymes with each one? If children are not that advanced, put the pictures of the animals on one side of the table and pictures of clothing on the other. Name each picture as you lay it out. Have the children take turns picking up an animal and the clothing that rhymes with it. Have each child say the full sentence. “An ape is wearing a cape.” etc.
Here are the animals and clothing I used:
goat – coat
dove – glove
fly – tie
cat – hat
fox – socks
kitten – mitten
ape – cape
pig – wig
ants – pants
llamas – pajamas
Next make a class book using the pictures. Have each child pick which animal they want. Have the pages pre-made so the children can simply glue on the pictures and color them in. Or if your groups are more advanced, they could draw and write their own pages. Then read the whole book to the class or group. Make sure during this activity the children have plenty of opportunities to produce the rhyming pairs.
