The Hungry Thing Goes Digital
The Hungry Thing is an monster/animal that will only eat food if it is referred to with a rhyming word. For example, if he wants noodles, he will ask for foodles. If he wants cake, he will ask for rake.
Each year I read the book, The Hungry Thing to my class. Then we use a poster of the Hungry Thing, with his mouth cut out, to slide pictures of food into his mouth. The Hungry Thing will only eat the food if the students provide a words that rhymes with the food item pictured.
Those days are over! Now the Hungry Thing activity is available online!
