Celebrating Seuss Part 3- Party Time!

We’ve been gearing up for it all week… Dr. Seuss’s birthday party!!! Our friends came over for a Seuss filled morning.

There are so many great Seuss books to choose from…how do you pick?!?

We started with There’s a Wocket in My Pocket. We talked about how Dr. Seuss used his own made up language to create fun characters and stories. After we read the story, we played a game to come up with our own crazy rhyming words:

I had a few words written on cards. Each child got to take turns drawing a card and reading the word. We then made a list of words that rhymed with it… real or made up. If you want to extend this activity, you can take the list of crazy words and have your child make up a silly story. We might save our list for a rainy day!

Next Up, we read¬† Oh Say Can You Say… a book of tongue twisters. The kids that could read took turns reading the different tongue twisters. Then we played The Cat and the Hat, I Can Do That Came (You can buy it on Amazon or Target and I’m sure other places). This game is fun and silly and great for preschool and early elementary. It gets kids up and moving!

Next up, we read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. We headed over to the table where I dumped out a bag of swedish fish (gummy fish). The kids first sorted the colors :

Then, we made predictions on who had the most, least, etc. and proceeded to make a graph to see how the different colors compared:

After this activity we had a picnic style lunch and watched a Cat in the Hat video. When the video was over, we headed back to the table for cookie cake, grinch punch and to listen to the story, the Cat in the Hat.

Grinch Punch is simply green sherbert and sprite…I think I poured about half of a two liter bottle of sprite and scooped about half of a quart of sherbert together. (I guess I could have just said 1 liter and 1 pint..but you get the point).

 

The kids had fun.. the grown ups had some adult interaction. Big Brother is already planning for next year.

Did you celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday? What was your favorite activity? Favorite Dr. Seuss book?

My favorite book is There’s a Wocket in my Pocket.

Celebrating Seuss- Part 2- Green Eggs and Ham

Oh my word… I just found a video on you tube of Tim Tebow reading Green Eggs and Ham. We are big Tebow fans around here… Big Sis calls him T-Bone.

So… on Friday, when we have our Seuss party, we’ll be watching this as well!

 

And after the video, maybe we’ll play a little Pin the Green Eggs on the Ham, compliments of Kidlet Occupation

Free Seuss Game

 

Remember to check back in during the week for more Seuss fun and games!

Celebrating Seuss- Part 1

We are HUGE Dr. Seuss fans around here. Did you know that his birthday is coming up this Friday? We are planning a Dr. Seuss birthday party with some of our friends.

To lead up to the party, I’ve planned some lessons to get us Seussified (Dr. Seuss isn’t the only one who can make up words).

I, of course, turned to Pinterest for some ideas. Here are a few that we will be using this week. I am also going to throw a few of my own original lessons in there as well… be sure to check back during the week to see what else we’re up to.

First of all, we are going to watch a short video about Theodore Giesel, A.K.A. Dr. Seuss:

Then, we will put some of the events of Dr. Seuss’s life in order using this timeline. UPDATED (2/24/14)… the previous link no longer works, but here is another one with a great timeline of Dr. Seuss’s life.

I selected about ten major highlights and printed them in large font on a separate word document. Big Brother will have to put them in chronological order.

Another idea I really like is this design a hat activity:

However, because I want big brother (6 years old) to work on his addition facts, I’ll probably give him two dice and have him add the sum when he rolls them. I’ll give him key that say if the sum equals 2, color the strip red, 3- blue, 4- green, etc.

For big sis (5 years old), I’ll give her one die and let her do one to one counting with a key to determine the colors for her hat.

During the week, we’ll be working on this:

You have to sign up with Teachers Pay Teachers to receive this printable book… there is no cost to sign up and this book is FREE!!!

Other activities we’ll do will include polling our friends about their favorite Dr. Seuss book.. we’ll graph the results.

We’ll play rhyming games, draw silly creatures and write stories about them, read lots and lots of Seuss books, party on Friday and so much more.

As I said, be sure to check back in the week to find out what we’ve been up to!

In the mean time, here are some websites with some great Seuss activities, printables and more…
