Draw a Rhyme

Isabel had her reading, writing and Math all finished before Luke and I were even dressed yet this morning. Once we were ready, I was busy with something so they drew mazes for me. Luke got very creative and drew spikes in his maze that I had to avoid, and stars for me to get and be invincible for 10 seconds. Sylvia worked in her “comic book” really just her coloring book.

I had Isabel do some “Draw a Rhyme Stories” from a Phonemic Awareness book that I found at the library. Luke thought it was great so he joined us, even though I think it is more her level. They have a rhyming story that the children are supposed to verbally fill in the blank and then draw what it is. For example, one started off, “When you draw a monster, it is said, you always begin with his ___________.” answer: HEAD! Then eyes, nose, etc.  Once Luke finished up his math and journal, I sent him off to his friend, Aden’s house and Aden’s sister, Morgan is over here playing with Isabel.

  1. It is amazing how so many of us use much of the same material. I asked my wife about this and she pulled out the Alien rhyme…

    When drawing a Martian, it is said, always start by making his _____/Don’t give him hair on top of his _____, give him a shiny, round helmet that’s ______/ Look at his eyes, so scary and mean, since he’s from Mars, they must be ______/

  2. I think you could make your own…something like this rhyme might be difficult. We lay on the floor sometimes in the living room with the two older ones and write stories. I do the writing (to keep things moving) and they do the creating.
