My son and I recently read the book, The Great Dictionary Caper by Judy Sierra. This is a fun, interactive, and flashy book about parts of speech, literacy, and language arts.
This book addresses topics such as actions verbs, homophones, palindromes, onomatopoeias, contractions, etc.
The Action verb page has various words like somersault, jump, glide and ricochet. Each word is written and drawn to portray their action. For example, the word Ricochet appears to be a character that is rebounding off the edge of the page. The word Jump is a character leaping in the air.
This book has influenced some of the games my son and I play around the house. Below are a few….
Action Verb – Ricochet
Bounce a soft ball off the wall and try to catch it.
Onomatopoeia – Bang
Tap a box with your hands and create various rhythms.
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious(Yes, this 34-letter word is in the book)
Listen to the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious by Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews
Antonyms – Big and Little
Draw a picture of a big and small animal
Try reading this book with your students or children and create activities that bring language arts to life!
