 Dr. Seuss Celebrations

Haven't had time this month to celebrate Dr. Seusses birthday? (*blush*-I haven't) Don't fret.Kick off next week with a fantastic frenzy of whimsical weeklong reading activities! For each day of the week, choose a beloved Dr. Seuss book to showcase and organize an activity around the story to encourage student involvement. Try these fun ideas or have your children suggest some themes of their own:
  • “Fishy Fun Monday”
    Read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish aloud to your class. Then, cut out some fish shapes from sponges and have students make a sponge-painted fish mural to display on a bulletin board in your classroom!
  • “Try-Anything Tuesday”
    Read Green Eggs and Ham and prepare a sampling of snack foods for students to try. Use food coloring to turn ordinary foods into unusual colors (e.g., turn white frosting purple or vanilla ice cream blue).
  • “What’s-In-Your-Pocket Wednesday”
    Invite students to bring a pocket-sized possession from home that they would like to share with the class (e.g., an unusual seashell, a collector’s stamp, an interesting toy or a keepsake). Begin the day by reading aloud There’s a Wocket in My Pocket, then invite students to take turns sharing their own items of interest.
  • “Theatrical Thursday”
    Read The Cat in the Hat, then set up a box of costumes and props (e.g., a red & white striped hat and bow tie, a fish costume or plush fish toy, red T-shirts labeled “Thing 1” and “Thing 2”) and invite students to re-enact the story in the form of a play.
  • “Foot-Frenzy Friday”
    Invite students to wear zany or mismatched pairs of socks to school and read aloud The Foot Book or Fox in Sox at storytime!
