 1-2-3 Come Do Another Cat in the Hat Activity With Me

Just when I thought I was done designing Seuss "stuff" 'til next year, I'm back at it.  (Part of my "obseuss-ion" with this author?) Actually, it's all Paula's fault. (I say this with a big smile on my face, as I LOVE helping others.)

She's from Florida and asked if I had any March-themed activities to help practice alphabetizing.  She's working on that with her kinders, who are quite bored with the standard.

seuss activities, seuss games, seuss crafts, common core seuss, alphabet activities, alphabetical order activities, alphabet crafts, cat in the hat crafts, cat in the hat games, seuss games, alphabet games, cat in the hat activities, seuss bulletin board ideas, Since they were already "not interested", I certainly didn't want to make another "same-old" worksheet. 

What could I design that would be a hands-on kind of game that they'd find interesting?

One thing led to another and the result was The Cat in the Classmate Hat packet.

Paula LOVED it! I hope you can use it too. There are two main alphabetizing activities.

Print the stripe template off on red and white construction paper, so that you have enough stripes for however many students you have.  Laminate the paper and then trim.  

Make an alphabetical list of your students' names, so that when you pass out a strip to each child it will be the appropriate color. 

Then later, when you arrange their names in alphabetical order, they will show the correct ABAB color pattern like Seuss's hat. 

Children write their name on the strip.  For extra pizzazz, have them glue their photo next to their name.  Collect the strips and keep them in a Ziplock Baggie.

We know how to alphabetize.", and "The alphabet begins with ABC. Numbers begin with 1-2-3. Music begins with do-re-mi and friendship begins with you and me."

You can demonstrate  what you want children to do, by first playing this as a whole group activity, explaining rules for alphabetizing along the way.

Make an extra set to hang up as a bulletin board or hallway wall display. There are 9 "brim" options for you to choose from.

I have got to put my adult hat on, and get to the grocery store, so I can wear my chef hat and dream something up for dinner. 

It's dreary and cold, and I'd much rather snuggle in and play.... Wishing you a wonderful week.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Horton Hears A Who Activities With Me

Happy TBT (Throw Back Thursday). Elephants are my favorite animals.  Although I truly love them all, the elephant holds an extra special place in my heart.  Perhaps this is why I find Dr. Seuss's Horton so endearing.  I'm also a huge fan of Elmer the Elephant as well.  

They were also very popular characters with my Y5's.  With that in mind, I designed some Horton-themed activities, with a splash of Elmer for comparison. This blast- from-the-past blog article, features 3 popular elephant-themed downloads that I hope your kiddos will enjoy. 

horton hears a who activities, horton crafts, horton writing prompts, elephant crafts, elephant activities, elephant mask, elephant puppet, Seuss activities, Seuss crafts, Seuss games, comparing Elmer with Horton activities, common core Seuss, common core horton hears a who, alphabetical list of words that rhyme with whoFirst up is my "Peek-a-Who" Horton-themed writing prompt packet.  Run the elephant head template off on gray construction paper; students trim. 

They have a choice of 22 "trunk tales" to pick from.  These are on separate trunks, which they trim and glue to their elephant head, then complete the writing prompt.  Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board. 

The packet also includes an elephant puppet craftivity made out of a toilet paper tube.  If you don't have time for this as a kid-craft, make one up to use as a manipulative when you read the book.

"Horton hears a Who, how 'bout you?"  is written on the front of the ear.

Children write their name and in Seuss-style sing song rhyme, write a few lines of what they heard: 

"Diane heard a Harley, which was really quite snarly. The Harley's name was Karly and she likes vegetable soup with barley."  

There's room under the ear for the student's illustration.  These too, make a sweet bulletin board.

Finally, I designed a whopping 42-page Horton-Elmer packet that covers lots of Common Core State Standards in interesting and fun ways.

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.

Play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games with the number word cards and their matching number cards.

The shape cards, as well as the color cards, work in the same way.  You can also play these games with the letter cards, matching an uppercase letter to a lowercase one. 

There are a number of options you can use for the container.  I bought a green bucket from The Dollar Store.  Currently, they have all sorts of pails and buckets for the Easter season.

So that the Grinch’s face, easily fits over the top of the bucket, I glued it to half of a sturdy paper plate. Fold his “mouth” on the dotted line so that children can flip it up and drop the Grinch “food” cards inside the bucket.

Add a green "hair" feather at the top, for extra pizzazz, and hold the plate down with some glue dots.  The packet includes labels to decorate your container.  Store each set of “food” cards in their own Ziploc Baggie inside the bucket. 

To play, simply pass out whatever cards you want to practice with to your kiddos, then call out a word, letter, number etc.  The child holding that card comes up, reads and shows it, then "feeds" the hungry grumpy Grinch.

The container in the photo, is from a 10-pack of Mr. Clean erasers that I bought at Sam’s Club. Cascade, as well as other dishwashing detergents, also use this type of container.  (It's the detergent that comes packaged in little pillows.)

They jot them down on a sheet of scratch paper, then write the rhyming words in aphabetical order on their hat. 

As is often the case with Seuss, have students dream up one nonsense word, which they define on the back of their bookmark.  Completed projects make a sweet Read Across America bulletin board. Caption: "Hats Off to Wonderful Word Work!" or "Rhyme Time With the Cat in the Hat."

Run off the number tiles on Seuss colors like red, yellow and turquoise.  Each number needs its own color.  Laminate and trim. 

I would do this as a whole group activity, so every student needs 10 of each of the 3 kinds of number tiles.   Store the set of 30 tiles in a Ziplock snack Baggie and make a class set.  By having 10 of each in the Baggie, you’ll have extras incase students lose one.

Have students take turns calling out 3-digit numbers.  Using a dry erase marker, children write that number on the hat brim and then put the correct number of tiles in the appropriate columns.  This is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess.

One side says, A place I’ve been is . . .  I like it because . . . Another side says: My favorite place to go is . . . because . . . Finally, the 3rd balloon says,  A place I’d like to go is . . . because. . .

To make these cuties, simply run off the balloon templates on a variety of colored construction paper.  If you want the balloons to be of the same color scheme as the book, then you need to run off pink, powder blue, light green, orange, yellow and light purple.

Students take one of each writing prompt and complete it.  Remind them to have spaces between their words, use proper capitalization and include end punctuation, so that you're covering those common core state standards as well.

Afterwards, students fold the balloons and glue, ½ of each one, to the other, so that the balloon now has 3 sides.   seuss activities, common core seuss, seuss lessons, oh the places you'll go activities, seuss crafts, oh the places you'll go crafts, seuss writing prompts, writing prompts for seuss, activities for oh the places you'll go, seuss bulletin boards, oh the places you'll go bulletin boards, writing prompts for march, hot air balloon crafts, hot air balloon activities,This is a lot easier for students to do, if you demonstrate how it’s done.

If you look closely at the photograph I took in the mirror, you can see the green side of the balloon in the picture as well as the back of the basket.

Run off the basket on brown construction paper. Students need a right and left basket, so that when they glue it together they fit, so that you can also view the basket from the front or back.

Punch a hole at the top of the basket, on either side. Tie a piece of yarn on both sides. So they don't show, these ends will be tucked inside the rectangular opening of the balloon.

It's nice if students can have 2 of the same photo, so their "body in the basket" also has a front and a back.  Insert yarn ends INSIDE the base of the balloon. You may want to use a bit of Scotch tape.

Punch a hole in the top of the balloon, in the middle, and tie on a piece of yarn. These look wonderful suspended from the ceiling.  seuss activities, common core seuss, seuss lessons, oh the places you'll go activities, seuss crafts, oh the places you'll go crafts, seuss writing prompts, writing prompts for seuss, activities for oh the places you'll go, seuss bulletin boards, oh the places you'll go bulletin boards, writing prompts for march, hot air balloon crafts, hot air balloon activities,Click on the link to view/download the Oh The Places You’ll Go Writing Prompt Balloons.

1-2-3 Come Shape Up With The Lorax And Me!

Since the Silly Shaped Penguins have been such a huge success, I thought I'd try to make something similar, with a Seuss character.  lorax activities, seuss common core, lorax common core, shape activities, hexagon activities, 2D shape lessons, easy reader booklets, shape booklet, lorax crafts, lorax shapes, lorax lessons, seuss crafts, seuss shapes, lorax common core, march bulletin boards, seuss bulletin boards, lorax bulletin boards, spring bulletin boards, The Lorax, because he's already an oval, was the perfect fit.

You can make a set and simply use them as shape anchor charts, for a fun review, during Seuss Week or March is Reading Month, or you can have students choose their favorite shape and make their own. 

I've included 2 different mustache patterns for you to choose from.  One says, "I mustache you what shape am I?" and the other one is plain. 

I personally love the play on words and think students will think that is sort of cornball fun too.

Keeping the paper folded, they only have to cut once, making 2 hands that are perfect for a Lorax mustache.

Start off by reading The Lorax and asking students what shape he is. Show them your samples and ask them which they like the best.

You could graph this for an easy math extension.  Simply hang the Lorax shapes on the white board, and write students' names under whatever one they like the best.

Tell the students that the Lorax ate some leaves from the Truffula tree and has Truffulaitis, which made him lose his normal shape.

Show your sample and explain what you want them to do.  i.e. circle the capital letters, add end punctuation, trace and write the shape word, trace and draw the shapes etc.

As children complete their Lorax easy reader, they can make a Lorax shape of their choice.  Run the templates off on orange paper.

Children can add wiggle eyes, and accordion folded, construction paper arms and legs.  Suspend the Lorax shapes back-to-back from the ceiling, or mount them on a pastel blue bulletin board, flanked by truffula trees.

Your caption could be: "Reading Really Gets Us In Shape!"  Click on the link to view/print the Lorax Shape Packet.

For an adorable bulletin board, take everyone's photograph wearing their mustache and put it next to their writing.  Your bulletin board title could be the same question you are asking: "We mustache you, would you save a truffula tree?" 

Flank the board on either side, with 2 colorful truffula trees, made out of strips of neon-colored tissue paper, and rolled up green bulletin board paper for the trunk, that you can stripe with brightly colored boarder.   Click on the link to view/download the Lorax Writing Prompt packet.
