Seusstastic!

I didn't always like Dr. Seuss stories. I like article adjectives and real words so Seuss stories were not always appealing to me. It wasn't until I was ready to graduate and I was given Oh! The Places You'll Go that I saw the magic of Seuss. Reading his biography has also opened my eyes to how his stories were really ground breaking in the Dick and Jane world of early reading. Enough of the psychobabble, here are some fun Seusstastic activities that my firsties were working on this week! 


 I was inspired by Mel D. over at Seusstastic Classroom Inspiration. She has the cutest examples and printables. Click HERE to head over to her site. I didn't have the time to paint their hands red for the body. Instead I had them draw a body and a picture that matches the destruction that Thing 1 or 2 would wreck on their house.


So cute! 



They had such creative ideas. This writer had Thing 2 throwing out her clothes! 



Tomorrow we are going to have a birthday party for Dr. Seuss complete with guest readers, birthday donuts, and Seuss hats! {We may even have a surprise visit from the cat himself!}


Happy Reading to All!
