March 2nd is a day to celebrate an amazing author’s birthday-Dr. Seuss! I have found so many great ideas online, some of which I may try in my classroom. First, I will be taking my kids on a virtual field trip to www.Seussville.com There are great printables and games at this site!
“Green Eggs and Ham”
Here is a video of the book “Green Eggs and Ham,” being read by Tim Tebow:
Rap of “Green Eggs and Ham” This song is very addictive. Beware-you may be singing it in your sleep!
“Hop on Pop”
Free Printable! This sight word activity uses the sight words “yes” and “no.” It encourages higher order thinking as the children read the sight word sentences to answer the questions correctly- with a sight word.Click this link to print it for free: http://www.seussville.com/activities/HOP_PupsInHouse_1.pdf
”There’s A Wocket in My Pocket”
“One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish”

“The Cat in The Hat”
I really want to copy this class below. They are so smart to make paper blue hair. I love how inexpensive an idea it is! My plan is to ask parents to send their child to school in a red shirt, on Friday. Instead of “Thing 1″ and “Thing 2,” I plan to let them choose a number that counts by either 5′s or 2′s (I haven’t decided yet). Then, I will have them line up in number sequence order.

A Week’s Worth of Dr. Seuss Lesson Plans
Monday – Listen to Justin Bieber read “The Cat In The Hat.” Discuss rhyming words in the story. As a class, make a list of sentences about the cat and his hat, that contain color words, like: “The black cat has a red and white hat.” “His hat is red and white.” Student’s will then make a cat’s hat and on each stripe, write their own sentences.
Tuesday - Listen to Tim Tebow read “Green Eggs and Ham.” Listen to the green eggs and ham rap and sing along. Discuss the beginning, middle and end of the story and how the main character changed his mind. Make a concept web or graph about different ways to make eggs (scrambled, poached, over-easy, boiled). Students vote thier favorite type of eggs. Make pretend “green eggs” with shaving cream and food coloring -or- trace the white part of an egg and paint a green circle center. Students will then write a sentence about green eggs and ham: “I do not like green eggs and ham,” or “I like green eggs and ham.”
Wednesday - Read “Hop on Pop” and answer yes/no questions about several illustrations in the book….Is the pup up? Is the pup in? Can you hop? Next, the students will independently complete the “yes” and “no” sight word question sheet from the seussville website.
Thursday – Read “Horton Hears a Who” and learn about how everyone is important, no matter their size.
Friday - 1. View “The Lorax” movie trailer and then read the story. Discuss the purpose of the story (conservation-trees) and make a concept web about what we learned. Make a Lorax face with orange construction paper cut-outs of the moustache and eyebrows. Write a summary about the story using complete sentences. 2. Create “Thing 1 and Thing 2″ shirts but with numbers counting by 2′s or 5′s. Create blue hair by gluing blue construction paper pieces to a sentence strip.
