Thanks for stopping by! Are your students as excited by the latest craze as mine are? This unit will help channel all of that foxy energy into your speech sessions as you answer the burning question, what does a fox say? Why, speech sounds (while utilizing fantastic language) of course!
This unit includes a comprehensive book companion for Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss as well as foxy activities that can stand alone. Capitalize on the moment of the fox craze with a unit that will stick around for years and years to come. After all, when “What does a Fox Say” joins “Who Let the Dogs Out”, Dr. Seuss will still be around. It’s pretty safe to say he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! Please download the preview above to obtain a sampling of the activities that are included in the packet.
