There are so many things to do to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America! This week we read several of his books and did some activities and crafts!
After reading The Cat in the Hat we made -at word hats, posed as Thing 1 and Thing 2, and drew a picture to this prompt, “If the Cat in the Hat visited our house…”
We read There’s a Wocket in My Pocket and made up our own silly rhymes and illustrated them, like “There’s a SMED in my BED,” and “There’s a DANTRY in the PANTRY.”
Finally, we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and I created a fun activity pack that uses Goldfish crackers to go with it! We sorted, tallied, graphed, worked on sight words, made a cute fishbowl craft, and had a great snack 🙂
We also made this fun fishbowl craft. Cut the top off of a paper plate and tape it to the bottom. Paint and let dry, then glue some goldfish crackers to make your fishbowl!
“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
