This way, after cutting the strips apart, you will be able to make two word family hats with an ABAB color pattern.

Glue the other set on a sheet of turquoise construction paper and put up as a display by your word wall, or a separate Cat in the Hat Word Family bulletin board.

Whatever word family they get, is the one that they will read on the display.  Make it more fun by turning off the lights. 

Children can point to each word stripe with a flashlight, as they read the words in the dark.

Children write the words on a sheet of scratch paper, then write them in alphabetical order on their hat. 

Afterwards, they color the stripes with a red crayon, so that the hat shows the Seuss ABAB striped pattern.

You can also partner students up and give them both the same word family puzzle.  They compete against each other to see who can alphabetize and put their hat stack together first. 

They could also partner up with a person who has a different puzzle and take turns reading their puzzle to each other.  Afterwards, they can mix up the pieces and then swap.

You could also use the worksheet as a spelling quiz for whatever word family you're working on.  Say the word, then children write it on their worksheet.

Don't think that's happenin' though, as my bones are starting to yell "Enough!"  Wishing you a happy-go-lucky day. 

"Today was good; today was fun; tomorrow is another one!" -Dr. Seuss
