Instructional Ideas

  • Conduct activities on Dr. Seuss's birthday, also known as Read Across American Day—March 2nd 
  • Assign math activities during small group rotations
  • Encourage pupils to keep an eye out for positive character traits, invite them to share their observations and reward as you see fit 
  • Go outside; direct learners to use prepositions as they maneuver through a jungle gym 
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires copies—color looks best but black and white will suffice
  • Two of the 10 worksheets are specific to Dr. Seuss; the remaining worksheets can be used without a prior read-aloud 
Pros

  • Multiple activity choices allow you to tailor a lesson to your class's specific needs
Cons
