Down By The Bay

To finish up our Five Senses theme, we discussed our sense of hearing. I decided to do a rhyming project, since the kids have to listen to the sounds of words to figure out if they rhyme. We listened to the song and read the book Down By The Bay. I made a little packet for each child. The cover was red paper with the chorus written on it.
They decorated the front with some watermelon seeds.
Then I had some animal cut-outs for them to glue on to the appropriate pages.
Each page had a different verse on it.

And then on the last page they had to make up their own rhyme. I wrote in what they said and they drew the picture.
It was a fun little booklet that they could read themselves. And we all had the song stuck in our heads for the rest of the day!
