Last week we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by having a week full of Dr. Seuss related activities! The first day we started by reading Cat in the Hat and Oh the Places You’ll Go. We wrote about what we would do to get rid of the cat in the hat, and took pictures of ourselves and made them to look like the cat. We also made and colored easy readers using the sight word “you”.
As a whole group we read The Cat in the Hat as part of our year long Dr. Seuss unit that we are doing with the 2nd and 3rd graders. As a whole group we discussed the rules that were broken in the book and how the kids weren’t supposed to have visitors while mom is out of the house.
We then broke up into our reading buddy groups and the students shared with each other rules they have at their house. Then the students made their own houses out of construction paper and wrote a list of rules that moms and dads have at their house.
