Celebrating Dr. Seuss in preschool
I may be going out on a limb here, but I imagine almost EVERYONE has a favorite Dr. Seuss story that they remember growing up. My personal favorite Dr. Seuss book is … "Green Eggs and Ham" … hands down! I could recite it by heart! For my children, it’s "The Cat in the Hat".
We are coming up on March 2nd (Dr. Seuss’s birthday) and NEA’S Read Across America Day. Read Across America takes place each year on or near March 2 … and schools and libraries across the country participate by bringing children and books together. This year’s theme is "Read for the Trees", and will showcase the Lorax book as well as NBC/Universal's The Lorax movie.
I have found some wonderful Dr. Seuss activities around the web this week ... so this post is all about sharing some of those great ideas with you!
Some of my favorite preK Dr. Seuss ideas:
Handprint Things on parade (Joyfully Weary)
Dr. Seuss creature creator (LaPaz Home Learning)
Cat in the Hat Fruit Snack (Muffin Tin Mom)
Cat in the Hat Ice Cream Cone Snack (Motherhood on a Dime)
