There's A Zoo in Room 22, is a wonderful, fun children's poetry book of alphabet rhymes. Each poem describes different classroom pets, going in order alphabetical order. It just so happens the teacher, Ms. Darling suggests all the classroom pets at one time, whichis why their ends up being a zoo in room 22. A great way for kids do to a literacy activity with this book is having them make up their own classroom pet and use their imagination. For students in 3rd-5th grade can each get assigned a letter of the alphabet and make up their own class pet starting with the letter they get and write a poem about their pet. For younger grades K-2nd, the students can also get assigned a letter of the alphabet and make up a pet that starts with the letter they get, but instead of doing a poem they can draw a picture of their class pet and just write adjectives around it that they want to use to describe their imaginary classroom creature.
