1-2-3 Come Do A Doctor Seuss Activity With Me
Right along with “March is Reading Month” our school celebrates Dr. Seuss.
By mixing reading with math, I get more bang for my time, so I thought I’d design an activity using Seuss’s book, “One Fish Two Fish”.
So that you can easily diversify your lessons, I’ve included two booklets in the packet.
The first one is an emergent reader, which is packed with over 40 Dolch sight words.
For your convenience, I’ve included a full color version, so teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share, as well as a black & white option for your students to color.
Using Seuss’s story for inspiration, I’ve included some of his rhyming words, so there are "bad & glad" fish, along with fish that are fat, with one wearing a yellow hat; as well as one with a star and another driving a car.
Except for numbers 9 and 10, there are two numbers featured on a "fish bowl" page, which is a nice time saver that conserves paper.
The other option, is a simple “trace & write” counting booklet, which practices numbers, plus number and color words.
Pressed for time? Assign the cutting and assembly of the booklet as homework, which is then returned so that students can complete one or pages each day, during your reading or math block.
When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group, or have children partner up and take turns sharing each page.
The first one is a Seuss-themed reading log, which will help encourage students to read more during the month of March.
FREEBIE number two is a 34-page "Cat in the Hat" themed packet.
Print, laminate and trim the "food" cards. These are mini cards that include upper and lowercase letters, numbers from 0-120, number word cards, color words, 2D & 3D shape cards, 35 contraction cards, & 20 at family cards.
Students can also sort the number cards into odd and even piles and sequence them. Play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games with the number word cards and their matching number cards. These games also work for the shape and color word cards.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
It's currently snowing here in Michigan, and while the frosted trees are quite lovely, I'm so very sick of winter and looking forward to some sunny spring days.
Wishing you a fun-filled "Seuss-ical" kind of week, as you enjoy reading from "here to there and everywhere!"
