A week of Seuss!!!!!!

We started the week off with a snow day on Monday! That was supposed to be Read Across America Day and the day we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday! 

Then we had a two hour delay on Tuesday! This week was starting off just grand! So Tuesday was Fat Tuesday and we had to celebrate it so I improvised. We celebrated Dr. Seuss and Fat Tuesday together! 

They got their cat in the hat hats, Mardi Gras masks, noise makers and coins and we had a very eventful and celebratory day!!! here we are donning our gear!

Here is my hat that I wear every year for this awesome week!!!

This week was busy! We did a follow me cat in the hat activity! This one is a cut and paste. 

We labeled the cat in the hat!

We read books and graphed our favorites!

We drew the cat in the hat and measured him! and if you click on the picture of the pictures hanging you can download the measuring recording sheet!

The kids did some wonderful centers and had a blast!!!!

Any theme would not be complete without having our special pointers to use to read our emergent readers with!!! Click on the picture of the pointers to download them to use in your classroom!

We made Thing 1 and Thing 2 out of colored tongue depressors, feathers, and wiggly eyes. They made the sign for each out of white paper and markers!!! They loved doing this!!!

As a treat for my kids, they all received a cup with goodies in them! I got the cups at Target from the Dollar Spot over the summer and I got the goodies in the cups from Really Good Stuff!!!!

One last activity, they have a bag to take home with a stuffed Cat in the Hat, the book the cat in the Hat and a notebook to write down what they did with the Cat in the Hat!

Click on the picture to get a copy of the letter that is in the bag from the Cat in the Hat!

So, that was our week of Seuss! It was busy and entertaining as well as educational!
