Napping House-like Prepositional Phrases

Even though the text is on the easy side, my students ready The Napping House by Audrey Wood in preparation for a discussion about prepositions and synonyms. It's a great book for both and generates a lot of laughter. After a quick lesson, groups of 3-4 students were given a cloze form with blanks for the preposition and adjectives describing the characters. I gave each group a different adjective, such as silly, laughing, and angry.  Groups filled in the form with prepositions describing positions of each character and a different synonym for the adjective I provided (antonym for the flea). In DrawingPad they created a scene to match what they had written. They imported this to SonicPic and recorded themselves reading the form.
