There's a Wocket in my Pocket

Our Dr. Seuss activity today goes along with the book, There's a Wocket in my Pocket.  After reading this book, you can either have students make these pockets or you can make them prior to the lesson.  I just folded a 12x9 piece of light blue construction paper in half and cut out a pocket shape.  Then you staple around the bottom and sides, leaving the top open.

These can be used for numerous things.  You could write a word on a pocket and students have to write rhyming words and place them in the pockets, you could do certain vowel patterns on each pocket and place words inside the pockets, write a number on each pocket and have students find number sentences to place inside the pocket...
I have provided a 5 page download with short & long vowel word cards.  You can make a pocket for each vowel sound and students can place the word cards into the correct pocket.

 I'd love to hear if you have any other great ideas for using these :)
