Dr. Seuss

Our addition unit was the same week as Dr. Seuss week, so after reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish we did this addition activity.

Graphing our favorite Dr. Seuss books. I like doing graphs using the children's pictures. You can discuss math words, such as most, least, and equal.

Teacher-directed art lesson. Start with doing the painted hands the day before so it can dry. With one hand, paint red stripes on the fingers for the cat's hat and put it on the top center of the paper. With the other hand, paint blue on the fingers and do it on both sides of the paper for Thing 1 and Thing 2's hair.

Rhyming hat- Differentiate by having higher students come up with a 5 rhyming word set. Other students can come up with 2 words that rhyme and write them in the two white stripes.

 Flipbook- Fun way to identify the story elements of a book. Sheet of white, sheet of red, and another half sheet of red for middle. Staple at top after you Fold them staggerdly.
