Week 4: rhyming dust bunnies

Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas is very funny. The dust bunnies all love to rhyme, except for Bob who can't seem to get it all together. While this story is great just to read for fun, it of course launches a great discussion of rhyming words. The book helps to start the process of building and discussing rhyming words while also predicting what is going to happen to Bob. This story is funny for many ages, not just kindergarten. Students at older grades will have fun looking at the clues Bob gives, while also reading the other dust bunnies' responses to Bob.
