There’s a Wocket in My Pocket


On our last day of celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday we read There’s a Wocket in My Pocket.  After we read the story we talked about rhyming.  Hailey had to make up a word that rhymed with Wocket and then we would create whatever character she made up.  She decided to go with a Locket.

Hailey picked out all the colors to make her Locket character and cut out all of the body parts.

She glued everything together.

We made a pocket which Hailey cut out.

Here is the finished Locket.

Bartholomew and the Oobleck


As we continue celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday this week we read Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss. And what fun would it be to read that book and not make some Oobleck?  So, that’s what we did.

To make the Oobleck you will need:
1 cup of water
2 cups of corn starch
green food coloring

Mix it all together and then have fun:

Ooblek is a Non-Newtonian fluid.  When you pour it, it’s like a liquid…

when you squeeze it, it oozes out of your hands…

when you push on it, it’s like a solid.

It is so fascinating to play with!

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish


Our book for today was One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss.  We did a few activities to go along with this story.

This printable came from the Dr. Seuss Unit from What the Teacher Wants.  This printable is called Pattern Fish.  I stamped the first few fish in each row with a different pattern and had Hailey finish the pattern.

This was supposed to be a Goldfish Graph using different colored goldfish.  But I couldn’t find any colored goldfish, so we used pom poms instead.  We talked about most/least.

Hailey also did this counting sheet from ObSEUSSed.  And after she finished putting the goldfish on the counting sheet, we practiced subtraction while she ate the fish.

Then Hailey decorated a fish using tissue paper.  I found this fish printable here, but you could use anything you want.

Here is the finished fish.

The Cat in the Hat


We are going to be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday all week.  Here is the first activity we did:

We read The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss (I also let Hailey watch the movie).  Then we made a hat.

Hailey cut out the hat.  This hat is part of the Dr. Seuss unit from What the Teacher Wants.

Then she tore up red and white tissue paper.

And glued in on the hat, making the correct pattern.

The finished hat.  Very simple and she loved it!
