I often miss being in the classroom. Today is one of those days I miss the most! I use to do lots of fun things with Dr. Seuss books when I was teaching. During this time of year, I devoted two weeks to a Unit study of Seuss books. We had a blast! Now my kids get a taste of a few of those same activities.
In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday my kiddos ate green eggs for breakfast (egg beaters with yellow and blue dye).
After Kindergarten we watched the DVD green Eggs and Ham. I let them watch these YOU TUBE Videos too:
At storytime, they each picked their favorite Dr. Seuss book for me to read. My daughter's choice was The Grinch. Not surprising because she looks like Cindy Lou Who and often calls our dog Max because she loves the story so much. My son picked Horton Hears a Who.
We made these cute cat cookies...
We played a dice game called Roll the Cats Hats.
YOU NEED: Roll & Color The Cats Hat Activity Sheet
Red and Green Crayon
To Play With 2 Players:
One child gets a red crayon and the other gets a green crayon. They take turns rolling the dice and color in the number of hats they roll with their crayon. When the game board is all colored, the game is finished. The child who has the most hats colored wins.
To Play One Player:
Roll between a 1 and 3 color two hats red
Roll between a 3 and 6 color two hats green
After they have played and finished the sheet. Ask, how many red hats and how many green? Which color do you have the most of and which the least of.
SO Much More Seuss!!!
If they are good little cats, let your kiddos Try Some Online Games
Even if you missed Seuss day you can still do these activities on any day! Reading Seuss is fun any day of the week!
