## Dr. Seuss Activities: Cent-sational Seuss Hat

1-2-3 Come Make A Flip Hat With Me.

I got the idea to make hat flip books from Mrs. Zrihen over at A Teachers Treasure. She teaches 6-8 grade reading and made one for figurative language.   Click on the link to check out her creative blog.

My wheels were of course turning, of what I could do for lower elementary,  so I whipped together this one on coins.

The Cent-sational Seuss  hat is a quick and easy little activity for your Seuss unit that will help review coins in a fun way.

Students cut their cover into flaps and glue it to the edge of their hat, so that when they flip a stripe over, it reveals the appropriate coin that they've glued and how much it's worth.

Completed projects make a great spring bulletin board.  Click on the link to view/download the Cent-sational Seuss hat.

## President's Day Money Activities

1-2-3 Come Make A Shape Booklet With Me

The Dollar Shapes Up is a fun, quick and easy way to review Common Core State Standards: L.K.2a, L.K.2b, RF.K.3c, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a, K.G.2

Show students a real dollar bill and ask them, "What shape is inside the center of the dollar? Who is the president that is pictured here?"

Tell them that they are going to help shape the dollar up, because the booklet that they will be working on, is all messed up.

The booklet includeds the hexagon, pentagon and octagon shapes. If you don't cover those, simply leave those pages out.

Students trace and write the shape word, trace and draw the shape, circle the capital letters in the sentences and then add the end punctuation.

Children cut and glue the various shapes to their matching one in the booklet.

These shapes are all INSIDE the dollar.  As an added activity, run through spatial directions by having students put a shape above, behind, beside, between, under etc. so that you are reviewing that Standard as well.

Thanks for visiting today.  Do you have a President's Day activity you could share with us? I'd enjoy hearing from you: diane@teachwithme or leave a comment here.
