Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd

Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd




Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd

This is our Dr Seuss‘ Birthday Celebration, it goes on all week! Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd. Each year we add some new elements. Our preschoolers have fun and learn about rhyme, patterns, and just tons of other stuff!

Things

Dr Seuss Birthday Is March 2nd   We start the week before getting everyone’s handprints for a long strip of “Things”.

   This was the early years before it dawned on me to make a long strip and only do each child’s hand print once. lol

Cats’ Hats

This week the children are introduced to the concept of patterns. This concept is an important developmental step fostering pre-reading skills.

Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd  I found these tiny solo cups at the grocery store, I just cut some white paper into squares. Not sure of the size but not much bigger than the mouth of the cups. The kids can practice stacking as seen in the photo. Working on pre-reading patterning, balance, and the activitiy increases attention span.

  Over the years I’ve fine tuned these activities. Now the children begin with these white striped hats. They glue on just white strips. Teachers staple these to construction paper head bands to make actual hats to keep at school and wear all week. Later come the colorful hats that we display.

    Seuss’ Birthday Is March 2nd These hats are an important lesson in paterning. Children pick two colors and alternate as they glue.

Trees

This year we will be adding Truffala Trees!

The children will make these trees from aboutamom.com.

I might (if I find the time) do these as favors for our Dr. Seuss birthday party.
