Rhyming Dust Bunnies

Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas
Grades PreK-2

This is a wonderfully funny book that teaches rhyming words in a silly, offbeat way. Four dust bunnies named Ed, Ned, Ted and Bob love to shout out rhyming words, but Bob always has some trouble. This is the kind of story that when you read it to a class encourages a lot of laughter, calling out and silliness. I love to read it with my kindergarten classes and have them get involved thinking of rhyming words to go along with those in the book and then I hold up some cards with other short CVC words and have them come up with more rhyming words. I really like this idea from The Weekly Hive blog. I plan on trying this later this school year.
