If you've never made Oobleck for your class, it's so simple and fun! Just mix 2 cups of corn starch, 3-4 drops of green food coloring, and up to 1 cup of water together in a bowl until it has a slimy consistency. Your kiddos will love it! :)
We're also participating in dress-up days all week, themed around various Dr. Seuss books. If you'd like to do this at your school, here are some ideas:
Oh, the Places You'll Go: Dress for your future profession
The Cat in the Hat: Wear your favorite hat
Fox in Socks: Wear crazy socks
Wacky Wednesday: Wear backwards, mismatched, or inside-out clothing
The Sleep Book: Wear pajamas
The Foot Book: Wear slippers/ house shoes
My Many Colored Days: Dress in your favorite color
We're also creating some interactive bulletin boards to get our students involved. I found the first one on Pinterest, but it was only a picture, so I don't know who to credit for this great idea! We're going to use the second one with the older students in our building, and give out cute Dr. Seuss bookmarks as prizes. :)
In my Kindergarten class, we'll be completing several Dr. Seuss-themed activities, including making Horton Headbands and Thing 1 and 2 hair! This Seusstastical Party Hat Rhyming Picture Match is available for FREE in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store! If you'd like to use it in your classroom, I'd really appreciate your feedback on TpT!
We'll even be having some Seuss-themed snacks!
These adorable Lorax cookies are from Embrace My Space.
I made the Cat's Hat on a Stick last year, and my class loved them!
I found the Green Eggs and Ham Snack idea from Mrs. Lirette's Learning Detectives blog. She has some cute ideas there as well! :)
I'm also so excited to use some of the materials from my new unit No Prep Spring Holiday Math and Literacy Printables!
This unit also includes materials for St. Patrick's Day and Earth Day--it's just a Spring holiday mash-up! :) Scroll down to see some of the Dr. Seuss-themed printables that are included.
I hope that you all have a fun-filled Read Across America week!
