Silly Socks

On Thursday we read Fox in Socks by Dr Seuss. This book was first published in 1965. It features two main characters, Fox and Knox, who speak almost entirely in rhyming tongue twisters. You can view the story again in the video below.

A tongue twister often has a sequence of words that all start with the same letter or sound for example: Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Almost all of the words start with ‘p’ and the sentence is quite tricky to say fast.. When the words all start with the same letter or sound this is called ALLITERATION.


To celebrate this we wore silly socks to school.

You can have a look at our silly socks in the slideshow below.
