CLASSROOM – Rhyme
Some words are difficult to rhyme and with reason. That’s why we’re celebrating National No Rhyme (No Reason) Day in the classroom this week. Poets experiment with words to create fun and creative expression through poetry. While not all poems rhyme, those that do have that extra added quality to them.
Learning words that rhyme also gives us an advantage to learning new words, exploring dialects and the evolution of language. This week we offer several ways to explore words that rhyme, especially those difficult words that seem to have no matching rhyme. We also offer the Celebration Challenge!
HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM – Rhyme
Download and print this week’s projects and give your students the opportunity to explore language through rhyme. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
