Practice rhyming words with Dr. Seuss. You assign a word, or give students a choice. Children write the word on the brim of their Seuss hat and then think of as many words as they can that rhyme with it. Students jot their words on a sheet of scratch paper, then write them in aphabetical order on their hat.
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.
A brief synopsis of 79 Dr. Seuss Stories, including ones that are in his book collections: For example, The Sneeches and Other Stories. Plus stories from The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories that were published posthumously.
I wondered how many books Dr. Seuss had written, so I Googled it. There were guess-timates from 40 to 60 books; because of the discrepancies, I decided to make my own list, so I could count and know the answer. I came up with 65 (2 were for adults). I hope you find this alphabetical list, with some interesting notations, helpful.
After reading Dr. Seuss's book, What Was I Scared Of? (Also found in The Sneetches) discuss what kinds of things people are afraid of and how they can overcome their fears.
