Looking to incorporate sound sensory details, onomatopoeia and fun into your students’ writing? Look no further than The Sound of Silence written by Katrina Goldsaito and illustrated by Julia Kuo. After reading the book, be sure to check out their We Doki Doki page at http://thesoundofsilence.org/wedokidoki/1
Then, to celebrate the end of the year, create a The Sounds of the Classroom book. Take a photo of each child doing one of the activities below, and he or she can create onomatopoeia to accompany his or her action. Enjoy!
