Seuss Celebration

As much as I tried to resist the urge to do anything with Dr Seuss (because of his company’s not so nice behavior regarding teachers) I just couldn’t resist and ended up doing some fun stuff with my kiddos!

Simple is the name of the game for me this year! 

We have a lot more planned, but it will be on Friday! 
 If you have any ideas or links to great ideas, share them in a comment below! 
For fun, I will pick someone from the comments to receive a pack of your choice from my shop!
Congrats Special Teacher for Special Kids!!  I am emailing you now!


    1. Well, you can still celebrate it in your classroom…you just can't sell anything or do freebies with anything Seuss or use clipart that looks too much like Seuss characters. The company sent a cease and desist letter to TPT and hasn't been very kind about it all, so we have to be a little more cautious =)

  1. Love the kitties 🙂 Ideas… kids bring a favorite book to share. Parents come and do read alouds. Kids bring blankets, and books to read and share. Write book recommendations. Crafts and snacks are a must. Librarian or 'important' people come to your class to read as a surprise visitor. Teachers get dressed up (hats, thing shirts…)
    My Second Sense

  2. We had a door decorating contest a couple of years ago. I got every Dr Seuss book I could find and we read all of them in class. Afterwards, I gave my students each a book and they drew the book covers. They were so darn cute!!! We also won the contest! After I took them down, I color copied them and kept a copy for myself. 🙂

  3. Tomorrow is green day… We are reading Green Eggs and Ham and then we will try green eggs and ham with some green Hawaiian punch! Afterwards, we will graph if we liked them or not. On Friday we are reading The Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes back and will compare the two. We are also making a Cat in the Hat inspired snack. Love your cute cat in the hats!!!! 🙂


  4. Super cute! I usually go all out too, but I am taking it easy this year. Pajama day and the kids can bring in a small blanket, pillow, and stuffed animal for us to cozy up and have a read-in. Toying with the idea of cooking green eggs and ham for breakfast. I am not a blogger but have seen/heard some of the copyright "cracking-down" that has been going on…so sad! Don't we all have the same goal? To inspire a love of reading in our "kids"? Regardless, keep up the great work. 🙂

  5. Love the craft. I will have to remember this for next year. My class (K) worked with second grade we made Cat Hats, rhyming books,and did a glyph. We read the Cat in the Hat and watched the original movie. That was Tuesday. Today we read Bartholomew and the Oobleck. We made our oobleck in science.Tomorrow we will read the Lorax and make our own truffala trees from foam and pom-poms. Friday the primary classes are having breakfast of course Green Eggs and Ham. In the afternoon my class is having a snack inspired by Green Eggs and ham ( Cool Whip with a scoop of Lime Sherbet).

  6. Ok so I am just not reading about all of the clipart drama that happened last year. I am new to the blog world so I am just searching on Scrappin' Doodles looking for clipart to do a Dr. Seuss unit unaware of all the drama. I was thinking that I was at searching for clipart 🙂 Well….I guess I know now!
    Cute craft by the way!
    Kickin’ it in Kindergarten

  7. I went on a semi-boycott, too! (Fueled by the fact we had a field trip all day Tuesday and Friday is a PD day, so I really wasn't feeling the S3ussy love at all!) If I get over it, we might have a little contest asking how many titles you can name or some kind of graphing.

  8. Hi Jennifer!
    Your Seuss craft is awesome! May I use the idea for next year? Today we read The Lorax and had the best conversations after. Then we started building a hallway mural totally inspired by Pinterest! Hopefully I will have pics and a post this weekend!
    Your autographed book by Denise should be on its way!
    Have a great rest of your week!

  9. We will start our day by watching "A Celebration of Dr. Seuss" musical put on by our 5th and 6th grade class. We will also read "The Cat in the Hat" and complete the writing prompt,If Thing 1 and Thing 2 came to my house I would …
    Then complete our writing with Thing 1 and 2 handprint pictures.
    Success In First

  10. I teach @ a Christian school, so we marble painted an Earth after reading The Lorax. We wrote God made ——– for me to protect. Took pix w/ yellow mustache. Kiddos loved it. Today lots of fish activities.
