It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Dr. Seuss. Not only is his writing creative, humorous, poetic, and lovably quirky, but as an educator I’ve found it to be the perfect vehicle for promoting phonological awareness, a critical skill for building readers. With his birthday looming just around the corner (March 2), this is a popular time of year for all things Seuss!
Last year I wrote about some of my favorite Dr. Seuss activities in these three posts:
This year, I went looking around the blogosphere for some new ideas and found some I can’t wait to try!
- An entire Dr. Seuss unit from Chalk Talk, with 40 pages including patterns and printables!
- Make a hat like the Cat in the Hat using an oatmeal canister with these pointers from Frugal Family Fun Blog.
- Amy lists some irresistible ideas at Serving Pink Lemonade. (Thanks for including mine by the way!)
Do you celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday? What are some of your favorite activities? (Feel free to add your links!)
