Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss's Birthday!
Sarah has been coming home with lots of Dr. Seuss stuff from school. Yesterday she only wanted to read Dr. Seuss and tomorrow she is to wear red and white in honor of his birthday. I thought that I would run with all her enthusiasm and print out some Dr. Seuss activities and worksheets for all of us to do.
The Cat in the Hat
I printed out the famous RED and WHITE striped hat so the kids could turn themselves into the Cat.
Here are their self portraits.
Matthew as the Cat in the Hat Jillian as the Cat in the Hat
I love how Jillian saw the cat's bowtie and immediately said that her bowtie would be a hairbow.
Sarah saw Jillian's hairbow and wanted to do that too.
There's a Wocket in My Pocket
Then we read There's a Wocket in my Pocket. I had the kids draw and cut out what was in their pockets. Matthew had a 'shlocket' and Jillian had a 'clocket' - to which she also had to add a baby 'clocket'.
I found a whole unit on Dr. Seuss at What the Teacher Wants. This is where I found the printables for the Hat and the Pocket. The unit also has a bunch of fun Dr. Seuss worksheets.
I know I'm a day early on this post but wanted to get some ideas out there in case any readers want to have a Dr. Seuss day too!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
