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. Students write the things they enjoyed doing the most on each stripe of the cat's hat. Add a first day photo for that finishing touch. There's a hat without the 1st day sentence as well, so you can use this activity during March's celebration of Seuss.
Use these Cat in the Hat Popsicle stick paddles to practice long and short vowels. Inlcudes a list of words for all of the long vowels, and a list of words for all of the short vowels, which includes many words from the Dolch word lists. (PK-3rd).
Review capitalization and punctuation with this Cat in the Hat "craftivity." Students choose 5 sentence strips, underline the capital letter, add punctuation and then glue the stripes to their red construction paper hat in an ABAB pattern. If you want, have students rewrite the correct sentence on the red "stripes."
Practice place value with this easy and fun Cat in the Hat laminated place value mat. Students take turns calling out a 3-digit number. Using a dry erase marker, students write the number on the hat brim and then place that many number tiles in the appropriate columns. This is a quick and simple way to whole-group assess. When students have filled in their mat, they raise their hand. You can see at a glance who needs help.
Print, laminate and cut into strips. Keep each puzzle in their own Baggie. Use for centers, or a large group activity. You could also run off copies, so that each child has their own puzzle.
Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat number cards from 0-120. Packet includes math symbols so that students can make equations, as well as an odd and even sorting mat and a tip list of what to do with the cards, including Kaboom cards to make games even more fun.
Packet includes separate upper and lowercase letter cards, as well as cards with both the upper and lowercase letters showing. Use them for flashcards, a bulletin board boarder, center activities, puzzles or games. Includes a tip list of what to do with the cards, as well as "Kaboom" cards to make your games even more fun.
9 pages. There are 4 Seuss Candy Wrappers. You can print them in color or black & white. They fit a Hershey candy bar. I chose this size, because you can then slip in any of the other smaller candy bars.
6 pages. Common Core State Standards: K.CC.4a, K.CC.4b, K.CC.4c, K.OA.1,K.OA.5, K.CC.6, 1.MD.3 This is an easy project that helps review quite a few standards in a fun way.
