1-2-3 Come Do Some Dr. Seuss Activities With Me    

 Seuss is on the loose and I'm celebrating with some super-fun Seuss-themed activities. Today's blog features some of my favorite ways to practice standards using a Seuss hat.

The "Stackin' Up Word Families With A Seuss Hat" packet includes 39 word families! Not surprisingly, a lot of these words appear in Dr. Seuss’s stories!

Simply choose the word families that your students are working on.  

Use them for a bulletin board display, your word wall, centers, games, assessing and worksheets

Gluing the top square to their cat’s hat, then snipping on the lines, creates a "flip the flap" booklet.

I really think it’s important for students to not only be able to identify the various shapes, but pick them out in real life and give examples

With that in mind, I designed both booklets with graphics of real life things.

When everyone is done, read the booklets together as a whole group, to reinforce concepts of print.

I specifically used lots of Dolch word pronouns for more teachable moments. I’ve also included a graphing extension.

There are dice games, worksheets, an anchor chart, cat clock craftivity, clothespin clip game, sequencing time "Speed" game, pocket chart digital & analog time cards to the hour and half hour, an Itty Bitty Time booklet, praise certificates and an assessment!

Use the poster to introduce the lesson, then display it in the center of your bulletin board display, surrounded by your students' completed hats. 

Simply run off the template. Students write the things that they enjoyed doing the most during their day at school, writing something on each stripe of the cat's hat.

They write their name in the oval on the bottom.  Add a school photo for that finishing touch.

Since a lot of teachers decorate with Seuss for back-to-school,  I’ve also included a template for that special first day.

Seuss-tastic!

Even though I’m celebrating a theme day like Dr. Seuss’ birthday or  doing something special for March is Reading Month like having a Cat in the Hat Day, I still nail all of my report card standards.

I simply design things with that particular theme.  To say I LOVE doing that is an understatement!  There is just not enough time in the day to make all of the ideas, nor was there ever enough time in the day to get in all of the activities I wanted to do with any of the grade levels I taught!

Hopefully your students will giggle at the craziness, as they trace and then write the words, figuring out that the cat’s hat is a cylinder and the March wind blew it away.

If you’re looking to make some awesome Dr. Seuss 3-D shapes the Truffula tree has a cylinder trunk and a sphere top.  I would love to visit Mrs. Lodge’s library to see her lovely Truffula trees.

Students also trace and write the shape words and then color the shapes.

When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print.

This packet includes a Dr. Seuss hat art extension.  Students design their own Cat in the Hat hat.  Brainstorm with your students what words rhyme with hat and write all of the At Family words on the board.

Students can include them on their hat.  To really make these a keepsake, enlarge their school photo, cut them into ovals and have students glue their hats as if they are tipping them.
