Using a Fox in Socks As a Teaching Tool
Fox in Socks is an enjoyable collection of tongue twisters, ideal for reading aloud with children of all ages. Their voices will giggle gleefully as they try out saying the silly words! With its rhythmic flow and rhyming meter, this book helps children develop reading comprehension skills as they try out saying them! To enhance the reading experience even further, here are some additional activities and craft projects designed to add extra enjoyment for readers of all ages.
Make a paper bag fox puppet as part of your reading routine, then use it as a narrator while reading Fox in Socks. Alternatively, encourage students to dress up like their favorite character from the story and recite or read aloud their version to their classmates.
An outfit featuring red or orange knee-high socks makes an excellent Halloween costume or simple outfit for storybook day at school.
