I hope you all embraced #readacrossamerica and #bookday yesterday by cuddling up with a good paper friend.
We’ve been doing Seussy things all week and I wanted to share the follow up with you. We still had our normal weekly letter, reading and sight words, as well as all these. I may make a calendar and put it in the side bar so you can follow along with us. We follow two different plans. I’ll link all the inspiration posts below so you can easily find them. You can also find me on Pinterest and follow my March Activities board.
I found a Seuss Week schedule for fun daily themes and we used that to show our silly Seuss. The only one that we haven’t done, which will be today obviously, is wear a mustache like that Lorax.
First we did Cat in the Hat name puzzles. These are fairly simple, I cut 12×12 scrapbook paper into 6″x2″ strips for the body of the hat and 12″x2″ strips for the brim. Take a sharpie and add any name to the brim then one letter to each strip for the body. Gideon knows what his name looks like and can copy it, so now we’re working on from memory.
We are also fond of STEM activities and played Stack the Cat’s Hat. You can use any card stock paper you like cut into squares that will fit the lip of a plastic cup. Alternate paper pieces and cups until the stack will not stand. We used white paper and pink cups (because I don’t have solo cups at the moment)
We’ve also made Oobleck with water and cornstarch. I’ll link it below, but it’s the most simple thing you’ll kick yourself for not doing it before. It’s super fun to see it go from liquid to solid and back again. Gid was mystified!
Coloring pages and a LOT of books, both borrowed from the library and those from our personal Seuss collection have been read many times over.
Our reading studies this week were the Ot Family and so many of the stories and rhymes contain these words that I think we have a fairly good grasp of them now. 🙂 We practiced the letter Tt and reviewed our sight words with hats and fun green labels (one set for the whole month, so we’re going with St. Patrick’s Day green!)
What does your home school routine look like for Dr. Seuss Week? How many magical books have you read this week?
