1-2-3 Come Make A First Day Activity With Me
I know a lot of teachers have a Dr. Seuss theme for their classrooms, so I thought I'd make an activity you can do with your students on the first day of school.
Simply run off the template. On each stripe of the cat's hat, students write the things that they enjoyed doing the most and then color the stripes. Add a first day photo for that finishing touch.
Encourage older students to use complete sentences. Younger students can simply write a word or two.
You may want to start by brainstorming with your kiddos. To help them with spelling, jot their answers on the board.
There's a hat without the 1st day sentence as well, so you can also use this activity during March's celebration of Seuss or a Cat in the Hat Day.
I've included a poster with another similar Seuss quote. Use it to introduce the above activity, or for a discussion at the end of the day of what your students enjoyed the most, and how everyone contributed to making that first day special.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope your days are as filled with fun as mine are.
I'm off to watch my grandson (22 months) play in his kiddie pool. So loving summer...
