The Wocket Models More than /w/

There is only one mention of the Wocket in There’s a Wocket in My Pocket written by Dr. Suess. However, that’s enough to connect to the /w/ sound for me. This has become more of an excuse for me to read aloud silly rhymes of made-up household creatures to my students. That’s not to say this book doesn’t have value as a read aloud. Struggling readers often have trouble with rhyming; even with older students I’ve worked with – it is really hard for them to identify the rhyme and create a rhyme. Suess continues to be popular. First published in 1974, this was a book my parents frequently read to us and it continues to be available in public libraries.

Interested in tutoring or know a parent who’s looking for a reading tutor? Might I offer some suggestions for helping your child make progress in reading and developing an education plan by private tutoring? Contact me below to get started. I look forward to hearing from you.
