All Things Dr. Seuss!!

*UPDATE: I had to remove my Dr. Seuss Author Study from TPT. So I am giving it away as a free download. 
There were some errors on my previous document, so I uploaded a revised document. Please re download if you haven't done so already.


Wow, it has been a while since my last post! I have been so busy with work and my familia! It was hard to bounce back with all the rain and cold weather! I just find myself wanting to come home, get in my pj's, and just lounge. 

Although I 've been in "lazy mode" at home, I've been working hard and kicking butt at school! I have semi good news. It turns out that I was runner up for  Teacher of the Year! Well, congrats to Ms.  Cole! As for me, maybe next year. ;D

So, I have been working on some goodies while I was away. 

So for Dr. Seuss's B-day, my school went all out and had a Dr. Seuss literacy night/ birthday celebration. 

This is our front office. Students from the National Art Society came from our high school to decorate the front office windows! It came out pretty awesome!

To keep up with the occasion, I created a Dr. Seuss Author Study Lap Book and Interactive Activities! 
Here is the title page of our lapbook! I used a file folder to create my lapbook. I included flaps to go on the file folder and then the flap book in the middle. My students got their biographical information about Dr. Seuss from pebblego.com to complete their project. We did a lot of it together as a whole group.
Each page in the flap book has activities to go with that particular Dr. Seuss book.
For One Fish Two Fish they had to write rhyming words from the book, why they liked this story, and draw a picture.
For Green Eggs and Ham they had to write a list of nouns from the book, why they liked the story, and draw a picture.
For The Cat in the Hat they had to write adjectives that describe the Cat and complete the writing prompt.
For the Lorax they had to complete the writing prompt and then complete the cut and paste recycling sort.
These are pockets where they sorted pictures of books by Dr. Seuss and other authors.
I also included a Cat in the Hat template. I printed them on cardstock paper so they wouldn't be flimsy. I had my students color it and glue it to a sentence strip. They loved these hats, and they were so simple to make.
Well, there you have it!! An awesome week celebrating Dr. Seuss's Birthday and Read Across America!! If you like these activities you can grab your set here at my TPT Store.
