Category Archives: Dr. Seuss Day
Anytime of year is a great time to learn about Dr. Seuss! My Kindergarten students love hearing Dr. Seuss’ stories from day one, but it takes them a little bit to engage with rhyming, opposites, and writing on their own. Once they are ready for that, I have 7 great stations that you can easily set up for a fun Dr. Seuss day or for small group or large group review!
Each one of these stations took me less than 5 minutes to set up and create. I rolled out some Red & White striped tablecloth just to set the scene and we had 7 activities ready to go! Read all about them here!
Here are some pictures from our morning stations. See the previous post for details on where to get these materials! 🙂
We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday along with many others tomorrow and here’s what we will be doing:
I will be dressing up like The Cat! I wear all black and my red and white striped stove pipe hat–no paint or anything! 🙂
Here is the link to Seussville.com (there are TONS of printables there and games for the kids to play online)
The Kinder. kids will be rotating through 6 stations, one for each table in my room. I will lay it all out in the AM, but generally here’s what the stations will entail:
Station 1: The students will color a white hat with red stripes (I’ll photo tomorrow) and then we will staple it on a pink/red sentence strip.
Station 2: The students will color and cut out a red bow tie and a button that says “I’m Hooked On Reading” (from Copycat Magazine)
Station 3: The students will complete a maze I got years ago from Seussville.com and try to get the cat back to his hat.
Station 4: The students will play the -at family word game and tally the number of times they roll each word
Station 5: The students will create a door hanger for their bedroom door so their family knows not to disturb them when reading! (from Copycat Magazine)
Station 6: The students will complete a rhyming sheet, matching two pictures that rhyme in the -at and -an families (from Teacher’s Helper Magazine)
We will be reading Dr. Seuss books all day long and listening to books on tape as well! Afterwards, we will graph our favorite Dr. Seuss book!
What do you do?
Stay tuned for pictures tomorrow! 🙂
