I know! I know! I'm SO late! lol :) That has been my theme lately, unfortunately! But here we go :)
I love Dr. Seuss! Though some of his books tend to run too long for me, I adore his whimsical imagination nonetheless! I love that my boys love his books too! We have a lot already, but checked out some others because I wanted to read as many as we possibly could & do as many fun activities as we possibly could! Regretfully, we didn't get to read & do all I had hoped, but we did have a Seusstacular week anyway!
Now don't start hating, but I can't remember where I got all of our printables from! I did buy a cute pack from Mama's Little Monkeys for $1 & I went to Teacher Pay Teachers & searched for FREE printables. I really love that site! There are so many creative teachers out there!!
As you can see Rylan had a blast with all of his Seuss stuff & I forgot to get pics of Brady working on some of his. I didn't find a whole lot for 1st grade that I was willing to buy, but I did print some free stuff from Seussville.com that included language & reading work as well as some math, all with Dr. Suess themes!
One day for lunch I made the boys sandwiches from this fish shaped bread (they really did't like it though;P) & of course Goldfish crackers. I read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish to them while they ate then I let them watch the Cat in the Hat cartoon that comes on PBS.
We used their hands to make Things 1 & 2 which I thought turned out super cute!! I loved it because I always call Brady & Rylan Thing 1 & Thing 2.
On Friday, Dr. Seuss's actual birthday, we went to the Resource Center for a party celebrating the man himself! They made Green Eggs & Ham, listened to stories, played games & did a few crafts. The ladies who work at the Resource Center each dressed up as a different Dr. Seuss character. We love them! They always come up with the cutest stuff for the kids!
