1 2 3 Come Do Some More "Oh, the Places You'll Go..." Suess Activities With Me!

Last week I posted a super-fun “Oh the Places I'll Go”  flip-the-flap, writing prompt HAT craftivity

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,While I was working on that packet, I also designed a craft featuring "little readers" as well as graphics depicting older students; however the packet was fast approaching 100 pages, so I decided to divide the crafts into 3 separate packets, which would then have less pages and a much lower price point.

This way, teachers could choose which writing prompt best suits their students and grade level.

Featured below, are the other two "Oh the Places" packets, which are not only perfect for March is Reading Month, Read Across America, or a Celebration of Seuss Week. but certainly appropriate at the end of the year, when students are "going places" by advancing into a new grade or graduating!

As with the HAT craft, these too, combine reading and writing with a bit of geography.

Children think of a place they’d like to travel to. Money is no object, so the world is literally at their feet.

Older students can do a bit of research, to find out about a fascinating place they’d like to travel to. (Thus the geography connection, as well as great research & technology practice!)

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,In the "Little Readers" packet there are 4, black & white graphic options of children reading a book. They come with and without faces.

The Students choose one, which becomes the “base”. They color, then cut it out. The hat "booklet" is glued to the top of the graphic of the child's head. 

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,So that teachers can quickly and easily make an example to share, I've also included full-color patterns.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,The cover of the hat, comes with & without the question words: Who? What? Why? When? Where & How?

This flips up to reveal 3-pages of answers.

For one of my samples I used the same color scheme as the "Oh, the Places You'll Go" story.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,To add a bit more interest, I also used those same colored markers to write in my answers.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,I’ve also included a blank page template, so that students can consolidate their answers to one page, or write longer answers if they want. 

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,For this sample I used red to color in alternating stripes, for a more traditional looking Seuss hat. 

This is a great teachable moment to practice an ABAB color pattern as well.

Using white as my second color choice and not having to fill in those stripes also saved time.

The craftivity provides an interesting way to practice & reinforce the “5 Ws + 1 H” question words in a fun way.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,I find this particularly helpful with my Y5s as they enjoy sharing, so when I ask if anyone has any questions they'll often say things like, "I want to make one" or "I have a hat like that" instead of asking a question. 

In all three packets I’ve included a poster with the questions, which you can use to introduce your lesson.

Afterwards, hang it up, so that older students can refer to it, or you could also read each question, then allow time for students to write down their answers.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,As always, patterns come in both black & white for students, as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,You can leave the “child reading craftivity” as is, or have students glue it to the pattern featuring a stack of 2 suitcases. 

If you think this is too much coloring for your kiddos, simply snip off the bottom suitcase to give to another child.

A luggage tag for a student’s name, adds some 3D pizzazz. 

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board or hallway display.

actiities to go with oh the places you'll go, seuss activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss crafts, read across America bulletin boards, end of the year activities, end of the year crafts, end of the year writing prompts,I’ve included a variety of posters in both packets, to enhance the display of your students' work.

There are also letters for the caption: “Oh, the Places We’ll Go!” to add extra pizzazz, which are also included in all 3 packets.

I hope you find them useful.
