It's Writing Wednesday. Last Wednesday, here, we were thinking about writing in rhyme. Of course, rhythm goes hand in had with rhyme. In the video below, listen to Bill Martin read his classic, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. He's all about the rhythm--so much so that he's really singing the text. We need to make the picture book words we write invite reading through their flow and rhythm. Eric Carle said that Bill Martin found the rhythm he liked first, then the words. Maybe we should try that!
