Wocket in My Pocket
There's a Wocket in My Pocket! What??? Anyone who has every read Dr. Suess knows he had an incredible imagination! His book, There's a Wocket in My Pocket illustrates that imagination perfectly. In the book, a young boy lives in a house with all kinds of characters-big, small, friendly and scary. While first graders read the story we noticed that Dr. Suess' characters did share some characteristics. They were furry, had crazy hair, and long necks. Their bodies came in all shapes and sizes. After reading the story students drew their own crazy character. They painted them with tempera paint and then outlined them with black so we could see all the awesome details. The backgrounds were made using crayons and textured rubbing plates. The final touch was to give a name to their character.
