Dr. Seuss

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
We'll honor Seuss's March 2nd birthday - all week!
Some of the activities we'll work on this week are in this 'Seusstacular Activities' packet that I created two years ago and revised this weekend.  It's a 15-page packet.

 Day One for morning work, the children will color and complete the sentence frames on this hat.  I'll display the student hats on a bulletin board in the back of the classroom and the kiddos can try to figure out who the hats belong to.

 Dr.Seuss picture books are a wonderful source for working on the strategy of making inferences while reading.
It's wonderful to work on critical reading skills while having fun!  Rhyming improves writing, reading and spelling and Seuss's books are filled with opportunities to review and learn about patterns and structures within written and spoken words.
At the end of the week, our awesome building secretary is popping popcorn for all first graders for Hop on Pop Day.   We love that wonderful gal!
We're also honoring the terrific book, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!  by creating and writing about imaginary teachers.   It will be fun to see who the children create for their unique, spectacular teacher.
Have a Seusstacular week!
