One Fish Two Fish: "sh" Word Sort

We used this word sort at our Dr. Seuss Family Night. First we read the book One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Then we taught them  how to play Rhyme or Reason. Next our students and their families completed our "sh" word sort while they enjoyed eating a yummy green eggs and ham  treat (lime sherbert ice cream  with whip cream  around the edge and a strawberry wafer cookie)! At the end of the evening we had a Dr. Seuss book give away...every child took home a book. We had a Seusstactic Night!

More fun with Dr. Seuss!

Our students created silly characters "Dr. Seuss Style" by piggybacking There's A Wocket In My Pocket. They also  made flapbooks associating colors with feelings, after reading My Many Colored Days

Dear Cat in the Hat...

Last Friday, we read Cat in the Hat while celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday. Then had a discussion about how Dr. Seuss isn't Cat in the Hat...that is was a real person. We read about him and how his mother told him silly rhymes while he was growing up. His mother's rhymes inspried him and this is what lead him into becoming the famous author he is today. Our students completed a writing frame that was in letter form to "Cat in the Hat". We brainstormed adjectives and possible phrases that would make sense in the blanks as a whole group before beginning. When our students completed their letters, they used construction paper to create their own Cat in the Hat characters. We had a great day celebrating this wonderful author!
