Fox in Socks Printables and Activities
The Fox in Socks printable pack includes these activities:
Language Arts: Alliteration
Alliteration is the repetition of a sound at the beginning of two or more neighboring words (as in wild and woolly or a babbling brook). Can your student find examples of alliteration in this book?
When you have an excessive amount of alliteration, you have a tongue twister. Encourage your older student to write some tongue twisters just for fun! Try reading them over and over as quick as you can.
Copywork: Tongue Twisters
Here are some tongue twisters for your student to copy:
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter
Language Arts: Rhyming Words
This book also incorporates rhyme. Discuss rhyme with your student. Encourage her to complete one or more of the rhyming words sentences pages.
Life Skill: Matching Socks
Teach your child how to match and fold socks.
Language Arts: Word Match
Cut out the printable socks. Have your student match the words to the pictures. This is a great activity for beginning readers.
Language Arts: Go-along Book
