Seuss-tastic Fun!

Hey everyone! Will you be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday with your class this week? Here's a collection of some of the Seuss activities and crafts I've done in the past with my kiddies. This is one of my favorite weeks of the school year and the kids always have a blast! I hope you all have a Seuss-tastic week! ;)

Cat in the Hat
We read the Cat in the Hat and made paper plate cats.
 This cute hundred chart idea came from Marlana at Lil Country Kindergarten. I called out the numbers and the kids had to find and color them to reveal the hidden picture! They loved it!
And of course, we made our own Cat in the Hat hats! (I had them color the hats but next time I would have them use paint so the color is more vibrant).

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
We followed up this story with a goldfish sorting and graphing activity. I gave each student a handful of colorful goldfish crackers to work with. Click here for the Goldfish Graph.

Green Eggs & Ham
We read Green Eggs & Ham, then tasted green eggs and did some more graphing! Most of the kids were brave enough to try the eggs and they loved them!

Bartholomew and the Oobleck
 This was a class favorite! After reading the story, we made Oobleck and did a sink and float experiment. Click here to get the sheet for the Oobleck Experiment
 

Fox in Socks
We wore silly socks on Fox in Socks Friday and practiced sorting and counting.

And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street
 We used this book to inspire our own class book. The kids had fun imagining some crazy things that could happen on our street!

  1. I love the on Mulberry Street class book. Would you be willing to share the cover and blackline sentence frame? We are still Dr. Seussing.
