Instructional Ideas
  • For continued use cut out story words, laminate and attach them to magnets, then post them on the white board or other magnetic surfaces 
  • Schedule time to go to the school library or download the titles referenced in the worksheets
  • If you are an upper grade teacher, visit a lower grade classroom to read a Dr. Seuss book to the younger scholars
  • If you teach lower grades, invite older learners to come to class and read to your pupils
Classroom Considerations
  • Copies are required
  • The activities hold learner engagement as they allow for creative thinking
  • Since this worksheet was created in 2006 and comes as a 50th birthday celebration for The Cat In the Hat, the fill in the blank worksheet's information is no longer accurate.
