The Going to Bed Book By Sandra Boynton Submitted by Joyce M.

Joyce is a PreKindergarten teacher. She has submitted a wonderful unit for The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton.   

Joyce's Comments:
Sandra Boynton's poem, in book format, was a great anchor book for our unit on Healthy Hygiene Habits!  This text offered a very rhythmic story that was entertainingly silly.  The pictures were engaging and promoted conversation about healthy bedtime habits.

Using a pocket chart, we transferred this poem to sentence strips where all rhyming words were written in red.  This allowed students to pick up a word card to match one-one-one to one of the red words on the sentence strips.  My students really enjoyed the challenge of this activity.

Theresa's Comments:
Joyce's differentiated graphic organizer draws activities that focus on rhyming words, directional positional concepts, opposites, graphing, rime families and sorting with beginning phonemes.  This is a wonderful, usable unit for PreKindergarten and Kindergarten teachers!

Thanks, Joyce for sharing your beautiful unit!
