March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday!
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” ~ Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You Go
Ideas for students:
- Post five places you would like to visit in your lifetime. Give a reason why you want to travel to this destination.
- Pick your favorite Dr. Seuss book. Create a book trailer using the iMovie app.
Dr. Seuss (Dr. Theodor Geisel) was born over 100 years ago on March 2nd.
Children always enjoy listening to bouncy rhythms and reciting catchy rhymes. By reading and listening to stories and poems with rhythms and rhymes, we explore how language and sounds work. This helps us to develop our vocabulary, memory, and concepts of writing. Listen to the story, There’s a Wocket in my Pocket.
- Even though the Dr. Seuss used silly, meaningless words, why were we able to understand their meanings? silly, or made up, rhyming words are often used to construct poems. Read “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll and “Bleezer’s Ice Cream” by Jack Prelutsky. Try to write your own silly poem.
- Celebrate Dr. Seuss in Seussville where you can play variety of games and activities, and find information about favorite Seuss characters.
