10 Apples Up On Top Onomatopoeia Art
I am going to guess that each one of those words put an image in your mind. Those five words are examples of onomatopoeia. To keep the explanation simple, onomatopoeia is a "sound word" of the object it is referencing; thus, "moo!" references the sound of a cow.
If you have a boy that loves monster trucks, most likely he makes many references of sound words as the monster trucks run into objects and/or each other! Or perhaps you have a child that loves playing in his/her toy kitchen--- the "sizzle, sizzle" of a frying pan or the "ding!" of the microwave are also examples of onomatopoeia that happen during play.
After Big Brother and I talked about different examples of onomatopoeia, Big Brother and I grabbed some pastels and I encouraged Big Brother to re-create the scene and then add in sound words to describe what was happening! I joined in the fun, too! While I was re-creating the scene I'd let out a "boom!" and a "bang!" to help my son connect the sound word to what was happening in our picture.
And still feeling "artsy" we made some Truffula Trees inspired by Dr. Seuss's, The Lorax!
