More Dr. Seuss Fun!

Here are some examples of Dr. Seuss activities we did this year: 

After balancing various classroom items on our heads just like the Cat in the Hat we practiced balancing little plastic cats with our balance scale.

For "Reading Across America" a lovely fellow teacher read Dr. Seuss stories dressed up as the Cat in the Hat

We made "Truffula Trees" with playdough, pipecleaners, flowers, and beads

After reading "Horton Hatches the Egg" we played a fun game where children opened eggs filled with different animals and they had to guess if they hatch from eggs or not.

After reading "The Foot Book" we measured items in our classroom using our shoes!

Here we made patterns using rainbow colored goldfish. Pattern grids can be found at prekinders.com

We made oobleck after reading "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" 

Check out these great pictures I created of the children that makes them look like Dr. Seuss characters. I took them using an app on my iphone called:Cat Cam. 
So worth the $2 or $3 I spent to buy the app.

we used the silly pictures to create a class book that the children love to look at over and over!

Last but not least we read "There's a Wocket in my Pocket" and created our own version of the characters. We then put them into envelopes to make "pockets"!
