Dr Seuss Week

A couple years ago, we did a Dr Seuss author study and series of Seuss literature units.  It was SO much fun!  For a while now, I have wanted create a single post where the whole week could be accessed in one place.  So here it is!  We had a different Dr Seuss book as our theme each day. We made all of our activities center around the particular "book of the day."  For each of the books listed below, we did several language arts activities, math, writing prompt, snacks and some just plain fun stuff that went along with our theme!  My favorite part of the week was my new reader discovering that he can read The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham!!

For The Cat in the Hat, we played "catch Thing One and Thing Two in a net," had a "Cat's Hat" pizza for lunch and a fun themed snack, themed addition practice, striped hat spelling practice (at different levels), and much more!  Click the link above to read about all of our Cat in the Hat activities!



Green Eggs and Ham is a book we all love dearly at our house.  We did a fun experiment to teach the kids not to judge something before you have tried it (which was more fun for me to watch than it was for them to experience!), we had themed snack, play dough, rhyming, and more!  I think this was my favorite day of Dr. Seuss Week.



For the sake of going over-the top with this whole Seuss week thing, my husband took the day off of work and surprised the kids to find that he would be their teacher for the day instead of Mom!  We ate dinner for breakfast (under the table), and breakfast for dinner, created wacky words, and tried to make the whole day as wacky as possible!!



Of all the themed snacks we had through the week, the Horton snack was my favorite!  We also had a writing prompt, a clover search, and ended the week by watching the movie.

- Our sensory bin was centered around the Dr. Seuss's ABC's book and the kids played in it all week.  We didn't really have an "ABC" day, but Corinne had a couple ABC themed trays just for her.

Dr Seuss Week

Corinne participated in our daily fun snacks and activities, but her trays were inspired a daily mix of Seuss books, rather than concentrating on one a day.
