Thundercake - Patricia Polacco Thundercake - Patricia Polacco

Thundercake is another book I read with my 4th grade class. We discussed the theme of the book, along with the setting, characters, and plot. Another lesson that came to my mind is onomatopoeias!! Growing up this was one of my favorite lessons, we learned a song and I still know it. Before reading the story, I would introduce the lesson on onomatopoeias and I could even share the song I learned. After learning about what an onomatopoeia is, I would read the book to the class. The students would be assigned to record every onomatopoeia they heard during the story. (zip, roar, boom, kaboom, crash, etc)

"The Watermelon Seed" By: Greg Pizzoli
The Watermelon Seed - Greg Pizzoli

This a short book with great pictures, which makes it great for younger grades. There are many onomatopoeias incorporated throughout the story. As a teacher I could use this to present or give examples of onomatopoeias. The story also shows how a charter talks and looks when he is scared. This could be used as a model on how to write the emotion fear. More ideas are available on the link below.
